…aka the cookies of the gods. Seriously. If you like butter you’ll love these cookies. The ratio of butter to flour is almost 1 stick of butter to every 1 cup of flour. The aren’t exactly a dieters dream, but hey, a girls gotta indulge once in a while.
The beauty of these cookies is how versatile they are. I typically make the dough ahead of time (even if it’s a few days before I bake them), but as long as they are chilled all the way through, they will bake up just fine. Also I usually don’t measure the amount of lavender or lemon zest that I put in the recipe. Or the salt. If you are particular about your cookies tasting exactly the same every single time, maybe you should follow the directions. But if you like to live on the edge, estimate the parts of the recipe that don’t really change the cookie base. Or switch it up all together. Double the salt and swap the lavender and lemon zest for toffee bits or chopped caramels. Half the salt and swap lavender and zest for chopped dried cranberries or pecans.
You’ll thank me later when your friends are eating these 3-biters as 1-biters and begging to know “what is IN these delicious things??”
Your answer will simply be “butter.”
Just leave it at that.
