This is a basic recipe for icebox sugar cookies, which can be altered in many ways. Cymone didn't realize that lavender is edible, so we decided to make something with it for her to try. They turned out beautifully.
1 1/2 cups flour (we used the soft white flour from Bluebirdgrain Farms)
1/4 tsp salt
10 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cups sugar
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
2 tbsp fresh or dried lavender, lightly ground in a food processor
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F). Grease cookie sheets.
- Gently peel paper off the log and cut the log cross-wise into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Transfer slices to cookie sheets, spacing about 2 inches apaprt.
- Bake, one sheet at a time, until the cookies are golden, just slightly darker at the edges (7-10 mins).
- Enjoy! Yum!
