In an attempt to make as many in-house baked goods as possible, I can now cross graham cracker cookies off the list. With the sweetness of local honey and toastiness of whole wheat flour, these cookies are a necessity when assembling s'mores- the gooey, sweet treat usually enjoyed by the campfire on hot summer nights. Filled with a thick layer of squishy marshmallow (yes, homemade) and milk chocolate ganache, Valentine's Day just got a little bit more lovable. Keep reading to see how they are put together.
Dried Lavender Flowers
It's the middle of December, and it feels like summer. Kind of.
Not only because there still isn't any snow on the ground, but baking with dried lavender makes me think of sitting in the backyard watching the butterflies and bumble bees buzz through the gardens in the scorching heat of July.
For day #12, I've chosen to make a treat inspired by a client's shared tale of a trip to France: Lavender Meringue Cookies. With a crispy outer shell and fragrant aroma of lavender, these light & airy cookies melt in your mouth and provide a wonderful contrast in texture to your holiday dessert table.
Eating. Drinking. Sharing.
