If baked Amaretti-Filled Caramel Roasted Pears weren’t enough to satiate your sweet tooth, then prepare to fall into a full ‘bloomed’ romance with this second flour, and flower-filled favorite from the same selection of harvest-season sweets fresh from Farmers’ Market Desserts!
Like a kid in a candy shop, I have an undying affection for anything floral – from a field of sunflowers, to a stem in a vase, to flower (yep, not flour!) in a recipe. After successfully spreading joy with an aromatic batch of Lavender Walnut Sandies, my ‘bud-ding’ relationship with flower in recipes has just been planted and will only continue to grow!
Lavender Walnut Sandies
From Farmers’ Market Desserts. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
3 teaspoons dried lavender blossoms
2 tablespoons turbinado, Demerara, or other coarse sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
½ teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
1 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped medium-fine
Do you dig the idea of adding flower to a recipe? Have you made a recipe with a specific flower in the past, and how did it turn out?
yuuuummmmmmmmmmm! they look amazing 🙂
I haven’t even had lunch yet, and you are making me think of dessert. Inappropriate, Modcloth blog. Deliciously inappropriate.
can’t wait to try this recipe!! 🙂
I got to try one of these (okay, maybe 2!) and they’re delish! I’m a huge fan of adding flowers to sweets… in addition to lavendar, violet is one of my faves, too!
yum these look amazing!!
I will definitely be trying these! I love making lavender honey ice cream too – delicious.
@ Emily – that sounds heavenly! Any chance you could share the recipe???
I absultely love adding a touch of lavender to certain dishes. It pairs nicely with things that have a zest of orange or lemon, and also, hang onto your hats, a pinch of it is fantastic in guacamole 🙂
