hey ya'll... checkiss out...

i pinned it.
I'm going to make some cookies. These cookies:


1 1/2 cups butter, softened
2/3 cup white sugar
1/4 cup sifted confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh lavender
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt 


1. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the lavender, mint and lemon zest. Combine the flour, cornstarch and salt; mix into the batter until well blended. Divide dough into two balls, wrap in plastic wrap and flatten to about 1inch thick. Refrigerate until firm, about 1hour. 

2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Cookie stamps will work well on these too. Place on cookie sheets. 

3. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, just until cookies begin to brown at the edges. Cool for a few minutes on the baking sheets then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

One of two things will happen. I will have some very tasty cookies to send to Sweet T (since she activated my lavender likin' taste-buds) or I will be moving due to the whole "you can't live in a single-wide if you burned it down" thing.

I'll be back.

While I'm possibly burning down the single-wide or becoming a baker extraordinaire, you should go see what Annie is up to!!! She's giving away a $500 Pine Cone Hill gift card RIGHT NOW!!! *swoon*

Yet another reason I stalk Annie Selke... she's renovating a 50's home. I would put an Eichler home on axles and then cinder blocks given even half of a quarter of an eighth of a chance.
Go see - Make sure and leave a comment! IN your comment would you PLEASE tell her that you know of a single-wide desperately in need of her mad decorating skillz? She should have a single-wide in her portfolio, right? I think so anyway...

comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide where I have to figure out how to zest lemon. Or grate lemon zest... or zest a grate lemon... this should be really interesting. Ohhhhhh... I wonder if Annie can cook? hee-hee
