lavender-white chocolate sablés

Back-to-back lavender and white chocolate treats this month! In these Lavender-White Chocolate Sablés, I again used the candied lavender I took from work. I was able to basically crumble it into a powder with my fingers to flavor the cookies. These are baked in a muffin tin…we’ve done this now with many of Dorie’s butter cookie recipes to make perfect circles with crispy rims. Rather than roll out the dough and cut out circles and then deal with scraps, I just portioned it with a little scoop into the greased muffin tin and pressed the balls flat into the cavities with a juice glass. Then I chilled the tin for a couple of hours. I will say, though, that I made a small batch of these (1/8th if I remember correctly) and only had to use the tin once, so this method was quick and easy for that.

These cookies are really crisp and buttery. The lavender is not the in-your-face flavor here that I was worried about…it’s pretty subtle. The white chocolate bits I think are star of these sablés…they get a little caramelized in the oven and sort of butterscotchy. The general consensus seems to be to check on the cookies a couple of minutes early, as they may not need the full 16-18 minutes of bake time.

  1. These are a very chic cookie, if I’ve ever seen one!

    • oh, thanks! can we open a cookie business called “the chic cookie?” xoxo

  2. Yes, I had the same experience with the baking time for these cookies. I like your method – rolling out and cutting can be quite laborious. I was underwhelmed by these but they went at work, no trouble at all.

  3. So very pretty Steph!

  4. Great idea for the tins, I will have to keep that in mind. We loved these cookies and I am glad the lavender was not over powering. My husband commented how professional they look since they are perfectly round. Made the work worth it.
