I have no lessons on Wednesdays and Thursdays, so I have no bento to offer you : ( So, instead, let’s have a recipe! ♥
Spring is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with these super cute cookies cut into sweet spring shapes? Here I’ve got bunnies, butterflies and tea pots ♥ Flowers, cats, teacups etc would be lovely too ✿
115g plain flour
75g butter, cubed
65g lavender sugar (I got mine from Waitrose)
½ tsp vanilla extract
2tsp milk (not really a traditional ingredient, but it makes them ever so yummy and chewy)
Pre-heat your oven to 180c.
Rub the flour and butter together with your fingers, and then add the sugar, vanilla and milk. Combine well. Place on a floured surface, and roll out to a thickness of about ½ an inch. Cut into desired shape, place on a baking tray covered in parchment, then prick well with a fork or cocktail stick.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until a light golden colour ♥
