Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Adjust the amount of lavender to suit your taste. Remember, a little lavender goes a long way! If you use one teaspoon of dried lavender, the flavor from the lavender will come across more distinct. If you use ½ teaspoon, the cookies will have a more subtle lavender flavor and the lemon will be in the spotlight.
  • tip 2
    Keep your cookies the same size with a cookie scoop! Cookies bake better and more evenly if they are all the same size. If you don’t have a cookie scoop on hand, an ice cream scoop can do the job well too.
  • tip 3
    Take two lavender and lemon sugar cookies and use them to make a decadent ice cream sandwich! Add a scoop of vanilla for a classic taste or try a scoop of fruity ice cream such as strawberry or raspberry for a bright flavor to compliment the citrus from the lemon.
