  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp culinary lavender
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • Juice from one large lemon (about 2 ½ tablespoons)
  • Lemon zest from one large lemon (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 TBSP cornstarch


  • Heat oven to 300 F.
  • In a blender, combine the sugar and lavender. Process on high until very fine, shaking or stirring occasionally to make sure all sugar and lavender is ground – about 1 minute.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the butter and 3/4 cup of the lavender sugar mixture until soft and creamy. Place the remaining lavender sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Add the lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla, and salt to the butter mixture and beat well.
  • Add the flour and cornstarch. Beat until combined
  • Roll into small balls, using approximately 1 level tablespoon of dough for each cookie.
  • Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until the bottoms are just starting to get lightly golden.
  • Place the baking sheet on a cooling rack and let the cookies cool for 4-5 minutes. Roll the warm cookies in the remaining lavender sugar mixture and set them on a rack. The sugar mixture will soak in a little and be sticky, so let them dry for 10-15 minutes and roll them again. Once they are cooled, you can also put the sugar into a paper bag and shake the cookies to coat them evenly.
