Versatile Lavender Cookies

These cookies are so versatile because they lend well to using other flavourings from your garden such as lemon, orange, mint or cinnamon, yielding an equally delicious treat. For an added visual and taste appeal, you can use a lavender-flavoured icing drizzled over top, coloured with a little purple food colouring. (Homemade Herbal tea blends, along with other wonderful recipes such as Tomato Ice Cream, Savory Cream Cheese, Boursin Cheeses, Cheddar Crisps, Dill Crackers, Yummy Lavender Shortbread, etc, are available at blog).
