INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Domino® Quick Dissolve Superfine Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender

INSTRUCTIONS

Sift the flour. Beat the butter and sugar in a mixer until creamy. Add the flour; beat until combined. Add the lavender; beat just to distribute through the dough.

Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thick; cut into desired shapes. Place on prepared baking sheets.

Bake until just golden, about 18 minutes.
