110g unsalted butter
45g icing sugar
1/2 teaspoon lavender flowers buds, finely chopped or ground
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
a pinch of salt
zest of 1 lemon
125g all purpose flour
1. Beat butter, sugar, vanilla extract, lavender, salt and lemon zest in a mixing bowl to combine. Add flour and mix to form a soft dough.
2. Roll the dough into a log shape and cling wrap the log. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. It is easier to cut a chill dough.
3. Preheat oven to180 degree Celsius.
4. Remove dough from fridge and slice the log into 1/4inch thick. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes. Cool on rack and store in airtight container.
Note : you can also roll out the chilled dough and use a cookie cutter to cut out your shortbread.
