Lavender Flower Cookies

Is it true?  Do little old ladies really like lavender?  I should know, I think I'm closing in on that little ol' age bracket.  Well maybe not quite, but definitely past the 1/2 century mark.

These lavender tinted butter cookies were made for a sweet lady who will be 75 years young this weekend.  As I edge my way with more birthdays behind me than ahead of me, I think I might agree...Lavender may become my new color.  At least tonight.

One of my go-to butter sugar cookie recipes comes from Fancy Flours.  Click here for her recipe.  

And my ALL TIME Fav Royal Icing recipe comes from another one of my favorite cookiers Ali B.  You can find it HERE.

Flowers need centers and the center of choice was a Wilton Candy Melt piped with a RI 75.  Encircling the center are sugar pearls.  

Now they are sitting on our dining table, drying and waiting to be bagged and ribbon-ed tomorrow.

Yes, I know...It IS December,but even though the cookies are not green or red or snowy they still reflect the Christmas spirit...that of giving and  life, for all good celebrations reflect the love of Christ and the new life he gives us.
