Waking up this morning to an inch of snow on the ground was reminder enough that Thanksgiving is just around the corner and Christmas is not far behind! This change of season always rekindles in me the desire to start baking again. Today I tried a new recipe for jam thumbprint cookies but added dried lavender to the cookie recipe and used lavender jelly as the filling. I must say they were very tasty. I'll be serving them at our shop on the farm this Saturday. Of course we have lavender for culinary use for sale there. Dried lavender adds an interesting flavor to many types of foods. I recommend trying a teaspoon or so of ground lavender flowers in just about any sugar cookie or white or yellow cake recipe. Lavender is especially good in combination with lemon or other citrus in cookies or cakes. Enjoy!
