Laura and her husband Chris are our upstairs neighbors. They're also readers and real-life cookie tasters. After trying some of my Lavender & Lemon Lovelies, Laura emailed me to say:
“As always, thank you so much for these delicious cookies. I knew they were primarily lemony and obviously the white chocolate chips, but I could also taste that they weren't that simple. So I just read about the lavender and black pepper. Strange? Yes. Delicious? Yes, yes, yes!!!!!!!!!!! Love the L&L Lovelies!”
Thanks, Laura! The savory side of lavender is slightly peppery, and I think the tiny bit of ground black pepper I include plays up that aspect of the lavender nicely.
