I want to share a GREAT recipe with you. Last November, I got a recipe of a friend of mine for Lanvender-Orange-Cookies and since then I wanted to try it. I modified it slightly to low protein and it turned out very good. It’s a perfect summer treat and it tastes as exciting and tasty as it sounds like. Plus it’s very easy to prepare, it will not take more than 15 minutes of your precious time 🙂
You stamp the lavender blossoms together with the confectioners’ sugar in a mortar. Then at the butter, flour, orange peel into a bowl and knead it together with the confectioners’ sugar and the lavender until everything is mixed well. Now mold a thick sausage with the dough and cut off the cookie slices. Place them on a baking tray (make sure, there is enough space between each cookie since they rise a little bit during the baking process) and preheat your oven. Bake it for approximately 20 minutes 180°C or 356 ° F. Let them cool down a little before taking them off the baking tray; they are very fragile and tend to break. Doesn’t have any harm to the taste, but doesn’t look that good anymore afterwards 😀
To have a lower protein variant of this recipe you might also try it with margarine instead of butter but I am not sure whether it turns out as good as it does with butter. (especially the taste will be different).
Enjoy it – and hey – if you try this, why don’t you take a photo of you enjoying the cookies? I would add them to this post to share 🙂
