Lavender Biscuits – A Tea Time Treat

Tea cup - Barefoot lifeLavender biscuits, scones and cakes always make me think of Victorian ladies having their afternoon tea.  There is something refined about them that makes me want to pull out my grandmother’s tea set.  Perhaps it’s the delicious aroma when they are baking.  What could be better than vanilla and lavender?  Whatever the reason, they are definitely worth making.  Cut them small though, these are for delicate mouthfuls.!
