The Best Lavender Cookies Ever

Are you a lavender lover? With just a few ingredients you can prepare these delicate, buttery cookies infused with the sweet aroma and flavor of lavender. Lavender cookies are sophisticated and great for all kinds of parties. They are a simple and perfect little treat to enjoy any time of day.



1 cup of flour

5 oz of unsalted butter

1.5 cup of powdered sugar

1 tablespoon of lemon juice

1 egg

¼ tsp of salt

¼ tsp of baking soda

2 teaspoons of lavender buds + more for decorating





Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.


Mince 2 teaspoons lavender buds to a rough powder (you can also use the whole buds).


Place 5 oz unsalted butter, 6 oz powdered sugar and the lavender buds in a large mixing bowl. Mix until the mixture is light and fluffy.


Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and mix until combined.


Add 1 egg and mix until combined.


Whisk together ¼ teaspoon of salt, ¼ teaspoon of baking soda and 5 oz of flour. Add the flour to the butter and mix until combined.


Use a tablespoon to scoop the cookies onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving 2" between the cookies. They will spread as they bake so make sure to leave enough room. Sprinkle a few lavender buds on top of each cookie.


Bake until the edges are golden brown and the middle of the cookies are set, about 8-10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the pan to set then transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.


Store at room temperature in a covered container.
