Lavender Lemon Shortbread
A customer favorite!
Lavender Lemon Shortbread is a delicious treat any time of year. Easy to make, and excellent with your favorite tea or lemonade.
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
¾ cup sugar (regular granulated)
¼ cup lavender sugar (see our post on how to make lavender sugar)
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
¼ teaspoon salt
3 cups cake flour
Preheat oven to 325 F. Beat butter, sugars and lemon zest with an electric mixer until just blended – do not over-beat. Stir in flour and salt, beating just until blended. Press dough firmly into a 10-inch pie plate. Score the dough into wedges, and then bake until golden brown, about 25-35 minutes. Cool for several minutes, and then cut the wedges again. Let shortbread cool completely before removing from pan. Enjoy!
