My favorite way to enjoy lavender in cooking is to replace the sugar in a recipe with Lavender Sugar. It’s so easy to DIY!
Here’s how I make it: Combine 2 cups sugar and one tablespoon lavender buds in a Food Processor on mince setting until lavender is finely ground throughout the sugar.
Add this delicately floral sugar to any dessert, muffins, scones, tea, dressings and marinades or sprinkle on any baked good for a fresh and elegant treat.
NOTE : If you don’t want to make Lavender Sugar for this recipe….you can use plain white sugar and 1 t. lavender buds (finely chop on cutting board with knife).
Try my Lemon Lavender Tea Cookies –
½ cup oil
¾ cup lavender sugar
1 T. lemon extract
1 1/2 cups flour
½ t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
Combine all ingredients. Mix well. Roll into 1 1/2 inch balls and flatten just a little bit with spoon. Place on cookie sheet then sprinkle with lavender sugar.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 12 minutes. ENJOY!!!
