Lemon Lavender Cookies

Alice Seuffert


Lemon Lavender Cookies are buttery lemon cookies with pops of lavender. These delicately sweet cookies are perfect for spring and serving at baby and wedding showers.

Light, buttery, lemony and just a hint of lavender.  Not too sweet almost buttery savory, this cookie is just what I need when winter has no end in sight.

Do you know what I’m talking about?

Spring. Maybe you’ve heard of it?

In Minnesota, we bounce from one glorious warm spring day to the next day with snow dusting the ground.

My daughter asked me the other day how long winter is in Minnesota. “Well let’s see,” I told her.  “November, December, January, February, March, April and sometimes it has snowed the first week of May.”

Wait. How many months was that?

Seven. You counted seven too, right?

Okay back to spring. Yes, let’s dream of spring and Lemon Lavender Cookies.


These Lemon Lavender Cookies are buttery, light and delicate.  Great for holiday exchanging, but also excellent for baby and bridal showers and perfect for a summer garden party or a tea party with your kids inside while you patiently wait for spring.
