I like the chewy and soft American style cookies, but once in a while I get craving for my mom’s cookies.
These are light and buttery.
Using my mom’s recipe as a base, I decided to make two different kinds this time.
Chocolate chip cookies and lemon lavender cookies.
These cookies are so cute when lined up like little soldiers.
They are absolutely lovey when just out of the oven, but the lavender lemon version needs icing.
Terry and I were watching TV the other night and as soon as Terry heard “lavender lemon”, he asked me to make something with that flavor combination.
Neither of us remembers exactly what show we were watching, but apparently those two words, “lavender lemon”, stuck with us.
I was planning to make cookies, so here they are.
I put dried lavender from our tea bar in a small tea bag, dropped it in warm lemon juice, and let the flavor seep.
It smelled heavenly, but I was also pleasantly surprised by the beautiful color the lavender added.
The icing I made using the lavender lemon juice ended up with a pretty light pink color.
Terry and I enjoyed them both so very much.
These cookies freeze well, but we really didn’t need to freeze them because they were gone only in a few days!
