Lavender Biscuits

Anything I say wouldn’t do justice to how heavenly these biscuits are. Floral flavours with a buttery shortbread like cookie is the perfect partner to your tea time. But the best part, my little ones and her friends couldn’t get enough of this. A cookie i thought was for grown up’s. How wrong I was and can i add, happy to be.
