Hello! Does it feel like spring where you are? Wellll, our daffodils are up, but they currently have snow on them. Sigh. But nevertheless, Easter's on its way. So the littlest and I made this lavender shortbread to celebrate spring and it is dee-licious. With the addition of the colored sugar edges, they are perfect as an Easter treat.
1 c. unsalted butter, softened
2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. dried lavender
3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
2 c. flour
Cream the butter, powdered sugar, lavender, vanilla and salt until smooth. Beat in the flour.
Divide dough into thirds and wrap in plastic, similar to the shape and size of a toilet paper tube. Chill for about an hour.
Unwrap one log at a time, roll in colored sugar, and slice into 1/4-inch rounds.
Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes.
Let cool slightly before transferring them to a cooling rack.
Hope you have some fun plans for Easter! Until next time...
