Lavender Shortbread

By Chef Chindi Varadarajulu, 31 Oct, 2018

    A passionate restaurateur and Chef, she led her restaurant in receiving many awards, and also garnered positive media attention.

     

     
     

    Ingredients

    • 200 gms butter
    • 250 gms flour
    • 75 gms cornflour
    • 105 gms icing sugar (separated 90 gms and 
    15 gms)
    • 2 gms salt
    • Lavender extract
     

    Preparation 

    • Take butter at room temperature and add salt. In a separate bowl, mix the corn flour and flour well. Add icing sugar to it and mix. Add the dry ingredients to the butter and mix well.
     
    • Pour onto an 11x11 tray and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Before putting it into the oven, it is a good idea to mark the required size onto the dough so it is easy to cut later. 
     
    • Once baked, take it out of the oven and cut when still hot. Sprinkle 15 grams of icing sugar after it cools down. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
