Who doesn’t like a tasty bit of butter, pecans, and sugar? It’s one level better with lavender.
114 g Butter
2 g Lavender Extract
150 g Pastry Flour
23 g Sugar
110 g Ground Pecans
80 g Confectioner’s Sugar
1/2 tsp Finely ground Lavender
Preheat oven to 325°
Beat butter until soft, add sugar & blend until creamy, add lavender extract.
Measure the pecans, then grind them in a nut grinder, food processor or chop finely with a knife. Stir them into the butter mixture and sift in flour.
Roll the dough into small balls, place balls on greased cookie sheet & bake about 30 minutes.
Roll after cooled in powdered sugar to coat, put them on a plate and watch them disappear.
If you want to store them, they will do well in a sealed container.
* If you don’t already have a scale, get one that also measures grams. Your baking will be ever so much better because you will be able to measure more accurately. Atmospheric conditions affect the volume and weight of ingredients, so using a scale helps make recipes succeed no matter where you are.
But, if you don’t have a scale here are some tips to help translate the weights
Butter – 1/4 lb = 115 g
Pastry Flour – 1 Cup = 106 g
Pecans – 1/8 Cup = 110 g
Extract – 1 tsp = 4.2 g
Sugar – 1 Cup = 200 g
Confectioner’s Sugar – 1 Cup = 125 g
