It's November and deep darker spices add a little Fall spark to these Lavender Shortbread Cookies.
What a fun Spring treat! Use any cookie cutter to cut rice krispies, we enjoy these little flowers to bring a little Spring cheer.

Oh my lavender hot chocolate fondue is so fast and easy to make with only 3 ingredients! We like to add a garnish of Culinary Lavender buds to add a touch more lavender flavor. You can also add more lavender flavor with 1/4 tsp Lavender Extract. Anyway you serve it...it's delicious!

1/4 cup Lavender Hot Chocolate
1/3 cup cream
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chunks or chocolate chips
garnish with Culinary Lavender
Add cream, hot chocolate stir to combine and add chocolate chunks or chips. Melt over medium heat until melted.
Such rich chocolate flavor!
Be inspired with lavender! If you make it #norwoodlavenderfarm we would love to see it.
Oh my my my, grandma will be impressed with this new version of a classical favorite. These cookies are so good...one just won't be enough! We like them dipped into chocolate, but the classical rolled in powdered sugar would still be delightful with these candies.
Lavender Whiskey Balls
1 Lavender Shortbread Cookie Mix
1 Cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups pecans, chopped
2 Tbsp Lavender Simple Syrup
1/3 cup Whiskey
Candy Melts or chocolate chips for coating.
Mix together Lavender Shortbread Cookie Mix according to package. Press dough into a 9" x 9" baking pan. Bake until lightly golden, let cool and then crumble the shortbread bars into crumbs. I like to use a gallon zip lock bag and then with rolling pin crumble the cookies as it creates less mess.
In a mixing bowl, stir together whiskey, 1 cup powdered sugar and lavender simple syrup. Stir in the pecans and crumbled shortbread cookie mix until combined.
Cover and place into refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Remove from the refrigerator and with a cookie scoop make your dough into small balls. Set on wax paper or silpat sheet.
Melt your candy melts or chocolate and dip your candy balls into chocolate to coat. Let chocolate harden and serve.
