Another quick make, this time Lavender Sugar Cookies.  Just 3 ingredients are required, and a few minutes in the oven and you could have over 30 of these treats for your afternoon tea.

Ingredients:

  • 175g butter or butter substitute, softened
  • 100g Lavender sugar
  • 225g plain flour

Method:

  1. Cream the butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon until combined. Unlike making cakes, you shouldn’t mix until the mixture becomes lighter in colour. The crunch from the sugar is what you’re after here.
  2. Fold in the flour until fully incorporated into the butter sugar mix.
  3. With clean, dry hands, gently knead the dough for about 10 to 15 seconds.
  4. Divide into 2 equal sized portions.
  5. Take each portion and roll into 2 thin sausages. The sausages shouldn’t be more than about 5cm in diameter.
  6. Wrap the sausages individually in greaseproof paper, then place them in the fridge to rest for at least 30 mins.
  7. When ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to Gas Make 3.
  8. Take the dough sausages out, unwrap them and cut 1cm thick disks. You should be able to make between 30 and 36 cookies.
  9. Place the disks on a baking sheet lined with greaseproof paper, and bake in the middle of the oven for 15-20 minutes.  I managed to place 16 per baking sheet. Ensure you leave some space in-between each cookie.
  10. The cookies are ready when they are a pale golden colour. Remove from the baking sheet and allow to cool on a wire rack.  Serve immediately with a nice cup of tea.
