  • How to bake a sandwich cookie. Lavender Lemon Cookie Sandwiches - Step 1
    Step 1

    My first challenge was looking at this lavender strait in the bud and say “how do i turn you from a flower to a food?”

    That was about the time I looked at the sugar (and my coffee grinder) for some help.

    I poured 2 tablespoons of lavender and a little less than half of the sugar into my coffee grinder and grounded it to a pulp.

    Not only did I learn how easy it is to pulverize lavender, but I ALSO now know how to make powdered sugar!

    I ground 2 lemons against a cheese grader, for my 2 tablespoons of lemon zest

    in a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Then mix this mixture into the other bowl, in several segments. Mix until a cookie dough is created.

    flour a surface

    gently kneed the dough onto the surface until it becomes
    thick enough to roll into a log

    then roll up the log of cookie dough in a sheet of parchment paper

    twist the ends, and put it in the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes, so the dough can harden. Before you take them out, you’ll want to preheat your oven to 375.

    slice up the cold dough about nay thick (probably could have cut mine a bit thinner, but I like my cookies soft)

    then place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I took to cookies that I sliced and paired them up by putting one upside down. This way, when you put the cream in them, you can hide the undersides on the inside of the cookie….did that even make sense?? Oh well.

    Step 18

    they should be in the oven until they’re golden brown around the edges(about 15 minutes), and the tray should be turned half way through their baking (about 7 minutes)

    this is how they should look when their done baking!

    Step 20

    Let them cool on a wire rack. While they’re cooling, you can make the butter creme filling by beating together

    room temp butter
    powdered sugar
    vanilla
    until it looks light and fluffy.

    Like this.

    Then placing it into something that will let you transfer it into the center of the cookie (so that it spreads evenly). I used this parchment paper method. But putting it into a ziplock bag, and cutting a corner of the bag, works too.

    the following, is my favorite part of the whole process:

    step one.

    step two.

    step done!

    I can’t really taste them, but I had a friend try them out for her expert advice. She said they were a good meal cookie, but that by NOT adding the creme, they would make a good tea cookie, as well.
