Celebrate the floral bounty of the Spring with these delicate and dainty Lavender Cookies. Crafted by the artistic blogger Elizabeth Adams from the awe-inspiring blog Arty McGoo, these bloom bearing treats are breathtakingly gorgeous. The perfect sweet compliment to a classy tea time, these sweets call for dollies and lacy white gloves.

Carefully decorated with artfully applied royal icing, these Lavender Cookies are whimsically refined. These confections feature a glossy cream-colored glaze adorned with vibrant blooms sitting atop flaky, buttery layers of crisp shortbread. Adams gave her cookies a victorian-esque appearance by creating a backdrop of edible aged paper and a tidy cursive scrawl stating the name of the blooms the cookies carry. Making for one impressive sugary centrepiece, these floral treats will wow your lucky tea party companions.

Beautiful, stylized and lady-like, these Lavender Cookies look right at home on your finest dishes.
