Lavender Chocolate Cookies

I love everything about lavender, its color, its aroma and I absolutely enjoy using it in various special desserts like in macarons, ice cream, or simply in a lemonade, and now in this delicious Lavender Chocolate Cookies. As I love chocolate I simply couldn’t leave it out but feel free to make only Lavender Cookies if desired.

 

A friend of mine told me about them and really was eager to give them a try. They are as expected, chocolaty with a subtle flavor of lavender which makes them really special and sophisticated. Lavender flavor is not loved by everybody, though I think that if used in just the right amount it can really bring the dessert to the next level. If you love lavender you should definitely give these cookies a try.
