This is the worst cookie recipe I've ever tried. I followed the recipe exactly and the cookies came out as hard dry little balls that fell apart as soon as you touched them. They do not spread when you cook them. They might be good but we'll never know because they are impossible to eat since they fall apart on contact.

I followed this recipe exactly, except added more lavender. I found the dough very hard to mix using the above method. Next time, I will mix the wet ingredients first, then add the dry ingredients a little at a time. The cookies were quite dry, so I would have liked to use less flour, but using this mixing method, I didn't have the option. The recipe also doesn't call for the cookies to be flattened once on the cookie sheet.. since they are quite dry, they will not flatten just from baking. I recommend either rolling them out and using cookie cutters or flattening the balls once on the cookie sheet. The cookies were a bit bland, so I plan on using an egg white wash and sprinkling granulated sugar on them next time. And possibly adding a bit of lemon zest to the dough. Oh, and I made just 1 less than 2 dozen cookies after rolling them into 1.5 inch balls.

Added more vanilla and flowers. I also added two drops of lavender essential oil. It helped with the moisture. I also rolled the dough up into a log and then sliced the cookies. They were more uniform in size and deliciously flavored.
