Calm and soothing, yet decadently sweetened with hints of summer, these berry and chocolate cookies are a lovely addition to al fresco picnics, teas, or anything you please.

I enjoy any excuse for a tea party…or a good cookie, and these pretty gems afford just such an occasion.  The lavender is light, just to taste, and the blackberries and white chocolate burst in your mouth and pair perfectly with a cozy cup of Earl Grey or Blackberry tea.  They also make a great addition to a Downton Abbey Tea Party or baby shower menu, or for cozying up with a great book like Lilac Girls, A Good Marriage, or The Guest List.

Cookie dough in mixer
  • In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda, lavender) then gradually add to the butter mixture while mixing on low.
  • Gently fold in the blackberries. (Note, you can add 1 teaspoon of sugar to your blackberries about 15 minutes prior to folding them to soften their tartness, if you prefer).
  • Chill the dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F while the dough chills.
  • Pour powdered sugar into a small bowl (big enough to roll balls of dough in).
  • Place parchment on a baking sheet.
