Happy Lent everyone! I have vowed to give up sweets among other things so it may prove difficult to keep up on the blog...but fear not! I made these last night, so they don't count towards today :)
One of my favorite things that we make at work is our Lavender Shortbread Frenchie. Our frenchies are essentially cookie sandwiches filled with delicious flavors of italian meringue buttercream. We fill the lavender with a lemon buttercream and it is one of the best things ever! I didn't have any buttercream on hand at home so decided just to make the shortbread. I made the dough a day ahead then pulled it from the fridge and let it come to room temperature before rolling and cutting. Here they rest on a beautiful bed of lavender buds.
Now go smell some lavender and imagine it in cookie form!
