Lavender Cookies with Rose Water Icing

Well, the truth is I am actually a teacher, not a writer and, as my Home Economics teacher used to say, I am definitely not “Becky Homecky!” However, my brother-in-law made these delicious cookies one year for one of our sabbat ceremonies to use in our cakes and ale ritual. They are easy to make and a must try!

Ingredients Needed:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon crushed lavender
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

For Icing
2 cups powdered sugar
5 1/2 teaspoons water
6 1/2 teaspoons rose water
Red food dye for pink coloring

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream together butter and sugar. Add the eggs, lavender, flour, baking powder and salt. Drop by teaspoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes.

While the cookies bake, prepare the icing by mixing the powdered sugar with the water and rose water. Add red food coloring to desired shade of pink.  Drizzle over cookies after they have cooled.  Makes about 4 dozen
