    Instructions
    1. Sift the flour and mix it with shredded lavender and baking powder. Set it aside.
    2. Combine sifted powdered sugar, salt, butter and lemon juice in food processor. Then add the egg and pulse again to combine.
    3. Then add the dry ingredients and pulse a few times until you see the mixture starts to form a dough. Take it out of a food processor and shape into a ball. Gently flatten it and put in a fridge for 1-2 hours.
    4. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to a minimum thickness of 0.5 cm or more. Cut the desired form with your cookie cutter, transfer the cookies on a baking sheet covered with baking paper and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 10-12 min, depending on how crispy you want them to be. Make sure they don’t burn.
    5. Put them on a cooling rack and once they’ve cooled, spoon lemon curd onto the center of one cookie and top it with another cookie to form a sandwich.
    6. Serve them the very same day. If you won’t eat them all, put them in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge for a maximum of 2-3 days.
    Recipe Notes
    • Be sure to use a lavender that is intended for use in cooking. For this recipe, I used a lavender from tea bags and the amount of lavender I needed was contained in 2 filter bags (3 g);
    • When freshly baked, these cookies have a relatively crisp texture which will soften a little bit when you sandwich them with lemon curd. If you won’t serve them the same day, you can bake them a day in advance and fill up before serving.
    • If you don’t want, you don’t need to sandwich these cookies with lemon curd. In that case, you can increase a bit amount of sugar if you want, and in this case, you can keep them for a maximum of 7 days in a cookie tin.
