Lavender & Almond Shortbread

20-25 cookies Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 8 minutes   Rated:


Once you have the shortbread bug there is no stopping you. This recipe is as old as my recipe writing goes. They are delicious and there is no reason not to make them all year round, not just on festive occasions. They keep remarkably well in the fridge or freezer. Don't go crazy with the lavender or you will think you are eating a soap, subtlety is the key! (Oh, and that butter...don't scrimp on the good butter!)
