1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temp
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp dried lavender flowers
2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
Zest from one lemon
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
On medium speed, cream the butter until soft in a mixer. Add 1/4 cup sugar and blend.
In a medium sized bowl, stir together the flour, cornstarch and salt.
Add dry ingredients to butter mixture and blend on low speed until ingredients are almost incorporated. Crush lavender with mortar and pestle and add to the dough.
Sprinkle in the lemon zest and juice then mix until the dough starts to come together.
Lightly dust your counter with flour and with a rolling pin, roll out the dough to a little less than 1/4 inch thick. Use your favourite cookie cutters or roll into balls and flatten onto a cookie sheet.
Bake 10-15 mins until golden all over. Allow cookies to cool before removing.
