lavender galettes

Usually I think of something else when I hear the word galette, but these Lavender Galettes are almost paper-thin crisps, straddling the line between cookie and cracker. I don’t really use lavender much at home, but the bar at work keeps candied lavender on hand for cocktail purposes, and I swiped (after asking, of course- haha) a couple of teaspoons to make these. The dough comes together easily by hand and is flavored with orange zest and olive oil, in addition to the lavender. To get them so thin, each cookie is rolled individually on its own parchment square. This sounds a bit fiddly, but the dough is easy to roll and isn’t too messy when done this way. They bake up flat and light as air, not too sweet and with nice floral notes. We ate them with blackberry ice cream that I sprinkled with a little bit of the candied lavender I had left over. Delicious!

  1. Yours are gorgeous! I love the sound of them paired with the ice cream!

  2. The ice cream sounds like a delicious accompaniment to the pretty cookies.

  3. Candied lavender and ice cream sounds heavenly. You’ve found the perfect way to describe the texture. Light as air is spot on.

  4. That ice cream sounds good but all ice cream sounds good to me. These were a delicious little cookie.

  5. I tried lavender desserts just a few times, but never made one myself, these galettes look pretty tasty!
