  • 175 g/6oz plain allpurpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 60 g/2oz caster sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried lavender
  • 115 g/4oz butter


  • Preheat oven to 150C/300F/Gas2
  • Line a baking tray with baking parchment
  • Sieve together the floour and salt into a large bowl and then add the sugar and dried lavender.
  • Now chop the butter and rub this into the dry ingredients. You want to get a breadcrumb like mixture.
  • Bring together to form a dough and if you have time wrap in clingfilm and pop into the fridge for 30 minutes to chill and make easier to roll.
  • Roll out the dough to approximately 0.5cm/1/4" and using a cookie cutter cut out your rounds, I got 15 from mine.
  • Place on the prepared baking tray and prick with a fork.
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until golden on top.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
