Lavender Shortbread


  • 160g plain flour
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried lavender
  • 1 egg yolk
  • A little extra caster sugar to cover biscuits



Step 1

Preheat the oven to 170°C and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Step 2

Mix together all the ingredients (except the egg yolk) in a food processor until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the egg yolk and mix again until a soft dough forms.

Step 3

Turn the dough out onto a flat, clean surface and roll to about 1cm thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes and place them on the baking tray.

Step 4

Bake the cookies for 8-10 mins, checking half way through and turning the tray around if needed to ensure they bake evenly.

Step 5

Once they are lightly golden, remove from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack. Once they are cool, sprinkle with caster sugar.
