Whether you’re looking for cookies to make for an upcoming tea party, mom’s group, Valentine’s Day, or for all three combined, these Tea Party Lavender Shortbread Cookies will make lovely cookies for any occasion.
Tea Party Lavender Shortbread Cookies
These favorite lavender shortbread cookies will complement any luncheon spread that your office might be having, or a tea party you and or your daughter are invited to, especially the heart-shaped ones. Aren’t they cute? Not hard to make at all, just be sure to use butter in the recipe and not coconut oil or another type of oil. I’d also go as far as saying, only use real butter and not margarine. Butter is real and will give it a better flavor. Margarine is fake butter.
