Lavender Lace cookies have been a longtime staple in many homes. This delicious crunchy cookie is known as a lace cookie because as it spreads it develops small holes in the cookie which make it look lacey. We couldn't help but explore the lavender side of this already amazing cookie to give it just a little extra.
Lavender Lace Cookies
1 cup butter
2 1/4 cups light brown sugar packed
2 1/4 cups rolled oats
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tsp culinary lavender bud
1 teaspoon salt
1 large egg lightly beaten
1 teaspoon lavender extract
Preheat oven to 375℉.
In a medium saucepan on medium heat melt your butter and brown sugar., stirring frequently until butter and brown sugar are melted. Remove from heat.
Stir into your melted butter and sugar the rolled oats, flour, culinary lavender, salt, stir together and then add egg and lavender extract. Stir until just combined and 1 teaspoon full of dough onto a silicone or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Allow 2 inches between cookies so they have room to expand.
Bake 5 minutes watching until they are just golden brown. Take them from the oven and let sit for about 5 minute to cool slightly before remove them to cool completely on wax paper. If you get in a hurry on this step your cookie won't hold together. No worries, if you have a cookie fall apart. We save all those delicious crumbs to top our ice cream with!
Makes about 4-5 dozen cookies.
We also made it fun for upcoming Valentine's Day by shaping them like a heart. To do this when warm use a tip of spatula to draw in the center of the cookie....so fun.
You can use parchment paper lined cookie sheet, but if you haven't already invested in a cookie liner for you baking sheets...it comes in so handy for this recipe and makes clean up a breeze!
If you make these cookies, we would love to see it #norwoodlavenderfarm.
