Lavender Shortbread.

My mom, Ziggy and I headed to the beach last weekend to enjoy the warmer weather. Another thing I love about the beach..? Having a full kitchen to make lavender shortbread cookies. Not only are these cookies delicious, but your kitchen smells divine as they bake in the oven.

Who knew you could eat lavender?!

• 8oz butter, room temperature
• 2 cups flour
• 3/4 tsp salt
• 1/2 cup sugar (white)
• 1 tsp vanilla
• 1/4 tsp almond extract
• 1 tsp lavender
• 2 tbs sea salt
• 2 tbs sugar (turbinado)

Using mixer, mix flour, butter, sugar (white), and salt. Add vanilla & almond extract and lavender, mix until fluffy. Roll dough into circular or square logs. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate until firm. Slice dough 1/8" thin and place on baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and sugar (turbinado). Bake 325° for 15 to 20 minutes.
