Lavender Gingerbread Cookie Recipe

December 11th, 2010 by Jardin Du Soleil

Mmmm! We couldn’t wait to try some gingerbread cookies with lavender this holiday season!

We figured the easiest way to try these cookies would be using our Certified Organic, Fair Trade Lavender Sugar, and it turned out to be just the perfect amount!


2 1/4 cup flour

1/2 cup Certified Organic, Fair Trade Lavender Sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup molasses

1 egg

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. ginger

1 tsp. ground cloves

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

Blend all of the ingredients with an electric mixer. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Roll out Lavender Gingerbread Cookie Dough to 1/4 inch thick, cut into shapes, place a half inch apart on a cookie sheet, and bake for about 8 minutes or until slightly browned. Makes 2 dozen 5-inch cookies.

*If you prefer a slightly stronger lavender flavor, add 1/2 tsp. finely chopped Culinary Lavender.

Ornamental Cookie Frosting:

1 1/4 cup powdered sugar

1/8 tsp. cream of tartar

1 egg white

Blend all ingredients until very thick- a knife drawn through the frosting should leave a line. Color and use to decorate!
