lavender biscuits

This week i have exams so time has been a bit tight so i had to do a simple bake. I made lavender biscuits. This is a biscuit dough with finely chopped lavender added, the dough is then rolled into a sausage shape and covered in demerara sugar which gives it a crispy finish around the sides. Then you cut the biscuit dough into slices which are then baked. This is a very yummy bake and the biscuit tastes like shortbread with a strong hint of lavender.

Did you know:- Lavender is a herb that has been around for about 2, 500 years. In the Ancient times lavender was used to make perfumes by the Egyptians, Phoenicians and people of Arabia. The romans used lavender oils for bathing, cooking and make the air smell nice.

  1. Yum yum, Moo Moo.

    They look very tasty. I like the idea of rolling the dough in sugar before forming the biscuits and cooking them! Just what you need after a difficult exam – a whole tin of these 😉

    Keep on baking
