What girl doesn't love Lavender? The aroma, color and simplicity is timeless! One of my top wish list destinations is Provence, France. I once read that the people of Provence sleep better because of the numerous fields of lavender. Here are some beautiful images inspired by Lavender, and below that is a recipe for Lavender Sugar Cookies, which I found on!
Lavender Sugar Cookies
1 cup softened butter
½ cup white sugar, divided
5 TBS confectioners’ sugar
2 cups unbleached flour
1/2 TBS dried lavender
¼ tsp salt1 egg, for eggwash (mixed with 1 TBS cold water)

1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter until creamy and pale yellow. Beat the egg. Gradually add ¼ cup of white sugar and the confectioner’s sugar. Beat well.2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, lavender and salt. Add to the butter mixture and beat until thoroughly combined.3. On a floured surface, roll the dough into 2 logs – approx. 1 ½ inches in diameter x 12 inches in length. Wrap the logs in plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour.4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees5. Whisk the egg together with the cold water6. Line an aluminum baking sheet with parchment paper. Unwrap the chilled cookie dough and brush with the eggwash.7. Roll the logs into the remaining ¼ cup sugar. Slice the dough into ¼” thick slices and place 1” apart on cookie sheet.8. Bake until lightly golden around edges, about 10-12 minutes.9.
