These Lace Cookies with Lavender White Chocolate Drizzle are buttery and sweet, only using a handful of ingredients.
For the cookies:
3/4cuplight brown sugar
1/3cupall purpose flour
pinch of sea salt
For the lavender white chocolate drizzle:
For the cookies: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F, and line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the sugar, melted butter, flour, vanilla, and salt.
Use a disher or a spoon to scoop out little 1 teaspoon size balls of dough, place them on the cookie sheet, and flatten them a little bit with your fingers. They will spread out a lot as they bake, so leave plenty of space between them. I never did more than 6 per sheet pan. Bake the cookies for 8 minutes until they are golden and bubbly. Remove from the oven, and let them cool on the parchment paper for 15 minutes, so they can harden up. Repeat with the rest of the cookie mixture.
For the lavender white chocolate drizzle: Chop up the lavender into very tiny pieces with a sharp knife, until it almost turns into a lavender powder. We want the flavor of it but not a big chunk of dried lavender flower in our mouths, so we need to get it broken down very small. While you’ve got your knife and board out, chop up the white chocolate into small pieces.
In a double boiler (just a heatproof bowl set on top of a saucepan with 1 inch of simmering water), heat up the cream until it’s at scalding temperature (right before a boil), then add the white chocolate pieces to it. Stir until the white chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth, and stir in the lavender. The lavender will infuse its flavor into the chocolate more and more as time goes on.
Lay your lace cookies out side by side, and with a fork, flick your wrist and drizzle the chocolate over the tops of the cookies. Let the chocolate harden, and enjoy!
