Eggless Lavender & Walnut Cookies

Once summer starts here, lavender shows their head almost in every garden here, i got a bunch of fresh lavender sprigs from my neighbour's garden as she knows that i love lavender very much. Back home, i used some of those fresh lavender for making these scrumptious cookies along with some chopped walnuts. This is the first time am using lavender in my baking,eventhough baking with lavender was one of my dream since a long.

I know very well that my kids may not love this lavender cookies,but myself and H enjoyed a lot with hot masala tea for our snacks, i loved the flavour of lavender in cookies.These cookies are really dangerous and if you dont care about your waist line these cookies are for you.Sending to Swathi's Favourite Recipes-Cookies.


1+1/2cups All purpose flour
1cup Sugar
3/4cup Butter (room temperature)
1tsp Baking powder
1/4cup Walnuts (chopped roughly)
1tbsp Lavender
Milk (as per need)
1pinch Salt

Beat the butter until they turns soft, add the sugar to the butter,beat for few minutes,meanwhile siever the flour with baking powder and keep aside.

Now add gradually the flour with baking powder,lavender,roughly chopped walnuts,salt and mix well..Springle the milk and turn everything as stif dough.

Preheat the oven to 350F, arrange a baking sheet over a baking tray. Make a medium sized balls from the dough,flatten them in your plams and arrange over the lined baking sheet.

Bake for 15-20minutes in middle rack until the crust turns slightly brown, keep aside and let them cool.

Enjoy with a cup of tea.

  10. lavender... the lovely fragrance. I am eager to experience the taste/fragrance of lavender in baked goods. The cookies look like a simple way to use them. Waiting to get my hands on some lavender to try it since it is not easily available here in Mumbai.

  22. Looks perfectly baked... I am not sure about lavender in cookies.. I still cannot drink lavender or jasmine tea. When i pick up a cup of jasmine tea, i feel like I am drinking malliga poo that we string for the hair... some things just takes a little getting used to, right?
