For the Kids…Lavender Sugar Cookies

Raleigh City Farm — Homeschool tour today—we munched on some delicious cookies. Sugar to make us energetic and lavender to calm us. Here’s the recipe.

2-1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups sifted confectioner’s sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg, beaten
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
6 drops organic lavender essential oil
2 tablespoons organic lavender flowers

Sift flour, sugar, and salt into a bowl. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add egg, milk, vanilla, lavender oil, and lavender flowers. Mix well and divide dough into two portions. Flatten the dough into discs; wrap them in wax paper and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 375°F/350°F convection.

Sprinkle a clean surface with confectioner’s sugar. Roll the dough to about 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes and place on a parchment-lined sheet pan. Bake eight to ten minutes until the edges are barely golden. Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight (preferably glass) container.

Delicious with a glass of lemonade and a group of laughing children.
