Lavender Mini Teacakes

My cousin grows Royal Velvet culinary lavender and decorative lavender on the farm she and her husband share along a river in southeastern Idaho. She suggested that I might use the culinary lavender in my cookies and specifically in a cookie like the one I made today as the first experiment. Since I’ve a taste for lavender candy and lavender-infused cream in small batches of ice cream, and since I want to expand my Mini Teacakes line for Christmas, I made a tester batch today. It went very well according to six people not all in the same household who sampled them, and none related to me. I was already hooked with the delicate flavor in a bite-size, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth cookie. Somebody (not naming names) popped multiples in her mouth, but hey, I’d suggested that she drink them from the mini-cupcake cup in which I served them to her … because she was getting her garden on.

And now, because bowls of tiny cookies look like bowls of tiny cookies, a photo which shows my appreciation of the decorative lavender my cousin also sent. Her cookies should arrive by week’s end.

Art and food. I love my thoughtful cousin.
