Lavender and Ginger CookiesAs part of my week-long blog to raise awareness of aromatherapy I thought I would go back to the raw ingredients themselves.  And because I felt like baking today, I decided to give you a delicious recipe for Lavender and Ginger cookies!

You will need:

  • 4½oz / 125g butter
  • 4oz / 110g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 6oz / 170g self raising flour
  • 1 level tablespoon dried lavender flowers
  • 1 level tablespoon chopped ginger


  1. Cream butter and sugar, add egg and beat well.
  2. Add lavender, ginger and flour and mix well.
  3. Roll dough into a sausage shape, wrap in greaseproof paper and freeze for 30 minutes
  4. Slice dough into cookies (should make about 30) and place on a greased baking tray
  5. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 20 minutes (Gas mark 3 / 170C)

Et voila!  A lovely batch of cookies.  Enjoy ♥

Fresh, crystallized, or ground ginger?

I use fresh ginger that can either be chopped or grated finely. For ground ginger I would probably use just one teaspoon rather than a tablespoon. Not sure about crystalised as I’ve never cooked with it but I guess a level tablespoon could work. Happy baking 🙂
