Lavender is a member of the large mint family, and therefore lends itself to savory dishes as well as sweet desserts. There are many possibilities because lavender is sweet with a citrus note. Lavender is also known as a calming and relaxing herb. I have two friends who I immediately thought a Lavender recipe would be perfect for. Both of their lives are going to get quite busy in the next few weeks and I thought a little bit of Lavender with its tranquil qualities would be exactly what they needed!
1/2 cup unsalted butter (8 tbsp or 1 stick)
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp dried culinary Lavender
1 large egg
2 1/4 tbsp skim milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup old fashion oatmeal
1.5 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup white chocolate Ghirardelli chips (about half a package)
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl with a hand mixer blend butter, brown sugar and Lavender until smooth. Then add the egg, skim milk and vanilla.
In another bowl mix oatmeal, flour and baking powder together. Then add in the white chocolate. Add all of these ingredients to the other bowl.
Mix both blends together until it forms a soft dough. Spoon dough onto a greased cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake 10-14 minutes until lightly golden!
I hope these bring tranquility and relaxation to you, they did to me! Follow me on Twitter @CheesePlease531 for general cheesy updates and tweets!
