Instructions
  1. Cream room temperature butter and shortening in a stand mixer until creamy.
  2. Add in the sugar, vanilla, salt and lavender and continue to beat. With the mixer on low, add the flour in batches until incorporated.
  3. Place the dough on plastic wrap, seal, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with cookie cutters.
  5. Place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper and bake for 13 - 15 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature before decorating.
  6. Mix together powdered sugar and a few drops of lemon juice until you get a glue-like consistency. Brush sugar-glue onto each cookie and place a flower on top, sealing down the edges if they want to curl with additional "glue."
  7. Allow to dry and serve. The cookies will keep up to 3 days in an air tight container.

    You mention sugar for the cookies in the instructions, but it’s not listed in recipe? Just listed for the glaze. Can you please correct this oversight?
