Ingredients

  • 160 g caster sugar
  • 125 g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp fresh lavender
  • 1/2 tsp lavender food colouring
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 260 g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 100 g white chocolate

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C and line two large baking trays with baking paper.
  • Put the caster sugar and fresh lavender into a food processor and blitz the two together for 2-3 minutes to allow the lavender to scent the sugar. 
  • Put the butter in a large mixing bowl and beat with a wooden spoon until smooth. Add the lavender sugar and beat again until fluffy and light. 
  • Stir in the egg, then in a small dish milk the lavender food colouring with the milk and add this to the sugar, butter and egg mixture. 
  • Add the flour and baking powder and gradually combine to form a soft dough. Stir in the white chocolate chips.
  • Shape the dough into a ball and wrap it in cling film and leave to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Split the dough into 16 pieces, then roll into a ball and space them out on the trays so they have room to spread a little.
  • Bake for 16-18 minutes, until lightly golden. Leave to cool for a few minutes, before moving onto a wire rack to cool.
