Lavender Biscuits Recipe

These biscuits are something special...

The flavour is unique and they look really pretty. The lavender isn't too strong; just a subtle hum. Always be careful when adding the lavender, you don't want to put too much in or it could end up tasting like soap!

(Makes about 16)

200g plain gluten free flour, plus extra for dusting
75g granulated sugar
100g margarine
1 heaped tsp lavender, plus extra to decorate
1 small egg yolk

Preheat the oven to 170c and line a baking tray with parchment paper and sprinkle with a little flour.

Mix together the flour, sugar and margarine with a fork until you get a breadcrumb-like consistency. Add a teaspoon of lavender and an egg yolk and mix together again. Bring together with flour-dusted hands to form a dough. 

Roll into 16 walnut sized balls and place them on the lined baking tray. Press down with a flour-dusted fork to form a biscuit shape and top with a little extra lavender.

Bake in the oven for 15-16 minutes, don't let them colour too much. You want them to be slightly crisp on the outside and soft in the middle. Once cooked, allow to cool on a wire rack.
