Lavender Shortbread


2/3 c confectioners sugar

3/4 c softened butter (1 ½ sticks)

3/4 c cornstarch

1 ¾ c flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 Tbsp dried lavender flowers or 1 tsp vanilla


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Put sugar, cornstarch, flower, salt and lavender in a food processor and give it a couple of pulses to combine. Cut butter into several pieces and add to the food processor. Process until a soft dough forms. Press into a pie pan or any 8 x 8 pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until a little golden around the edge. Cool in the pan for about 10 minutes then cut into wedges or squares. Share with friends.
