Lavender Chocolate Cookies

Lavender Chocolate Cookies

I love everything about lavender, its color, its aroma and I absolutely enjoy using it in various special desserts like in macarons, ice cream, or simply in a lemonade, and now in this delicious Lavender Chocolate Cookies. As I love chocolate I simply couldn’t leave it out but feel free to make only Lavender Cookies if desired.

 

A friend of mine told me about them and really was eager to give them a try. They are as expected, chocolaty with a subtle flavor of lavender which makes them really special and sophisticated. Lavender flavor is not loved by everybody, though I think that if used in just the right amount it can really bring the dessert to the next level. If you love lavender you should definitely give these cookies a try.

What a great idea to use lavender leaves in these cookies Ella! I've had lavender ice cream before, and loved it - so I can imagine it would be as equally wonderful in a cookie! Have a great weekend!

Hello! I made these cookies and they were delicious however they were very dense unlike the picture above. I checked the butter which states 1/2 cup but your picture under directions #3 has two sticks which would be 1 cup of butter. Which is actually correct? Thanks!
Re:

I've used 2 smaller pieces of butter that equals 1/2 cup.. maybe next time try to use less flour.. or use cake flour I am sure they will work fine next time
