I adapted this shortbread recipe from another one which had chocolate and raspberries. Sounds pretty good and I definitely might try it later but I wanted to try something I had seen on Pinterest and couldn’t wait!
So I decided to try and bake with edible flowers and the lavender that grows in my garden. I used a shortbread recipe but I think a plain, vanilla biscuit recipe would probably also work. The reason I chose the shortbread is because it comes out of the oven really soft which allows you to VERY gently press in the flowers and then return to the oven for the last 5 minutes of baking.
As I was using violas and also the lavender from the garden, I decided to add lemon flavour to the shortbread also as I felt they would work well together.
