I loved the shortbread I made the other week so much, I wanted to try some different flavor combinations. Since I am also growing lavender for the first time, I thought that it would be fun to try some lavender recipes this summer. This is my first!
Now, I know a lot of lavender recipes can taste like... soap? And I also noticed that a lot of the recipes call for lavender flowers. Well, I wanted to offset the potential soapy flavor, and our plants just weren't flowering enough. So, I added the zest of one lemon, half a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice, and one heaping tablespoon of chopped lavender leaves to Add a Pinch's shortbread recipe. The result was delicious, slightly savory, and not at all soapy!
