This is a 2 part recipe: glaze & cookie dough.

Glaze

1. Mix eggs with lemon juice, then mix in powdered sugar. Mix until everything is nicely blended creating a thick & creamy consistency.

2. Once it’s thick & creamy, cover & place in fridge for 2-12 hours. 

Shortbread dough

2. Take butter, chamomile & lavendar, sugar & mix with electric mixer until it has fluffy consistency. 

3. Mix dry ingredients into mixing bowl using electric mixer on low. Once everything is mixed at 2 eggs & vanilla extract. 

*if your dough is too crumbly, add a couple of tablespoons of water or 1 more egg. 

4. Once mixed take tough out and place inside Saran Wrap & refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours. 

5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, take cookie dough out of fridge & roll into thin dough between parchment paper. Use any shape of cookie cutter and cut away!

    1. Thank you much!! They are edible flowers, I found them at my local grocer-they unfortunately didn’t carry too many (hence their uniform color) so I opted for freeze dried fruits to add a splash of color to the cookies 🙂
