Servings 6


  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp culinary lavender, crushed
  • 5 large strawberries
  • Additional sugar for topping


  1. In a mixing bowl, cream the sugar. Add the butter and cream until smooth. Add the flour, salt, and lavender, and mix until a soft, pliable dough forms.

  2. Roll the dough into small teaspoon-sized balls and press onto a cookie sheet (or into a mini muffin top pan). Gently pat the dough into a flat circle.

  3. Take the strawberries and slice them into very thin slices. Gently pull any green portion off of the top of the strawberry slices. They should resemble little hearts. Place one slice of strawberry on each cookie. Sprinkle with just a dash of additional sugar.

  4. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, or until very light golden brown.
