Tea Bag Shaped Lavender-Lemon Cookies

These tea bag shaped cookies instantly put a smile on our faces. We really like this recipe from Cheryl Najafi on her wonderful and very
useful blog, CherylStyle.

We've tasted lavender cookies before and they are the perfect compliment to any cuppa tea. We recommend you trying this recipe at your next Afternoon Tea and sharing your thoughts.  And don't be afraid to be a bit adventurous and add some infused tea to the dough. Our pick? Cinnamon Haze fruit tea for a nice little kick.
