I've got some lovely lavender from my mum's garden and was thinking of making mini Christmas stockings filled with it.
This is fine but I was wondering if anyone had any other ideas of useful ways to use the lavender?
Thanks. smile

Here it is!

half cup butter
quarter cup granulated sugar
1.5 cups flour
half tsp lavender flowers
half tsp cinnamon
caster sugar for sprinkling

oven 400/200/gas 6

cream butter and sugar to fluffy
chop lavender to release oils
stir flowers and cinnamon into flour
add flour to butter/sugar, work into a dough
wrap in clingfilm, chill 15 mins
roll dough out between wax paper (v important, rolling in flour makes them too dry)
bake 8-10 mins until edges just golden
take out of oven while still floppy, they will harden
sprinkle with caster sugar while still hot
