Today, Sarah from EclecticArmadillo and Sarahsquiltsncrafts would like to share her favorite recipe with us! For those who have never used Lavender in baking, it gives your goodies a very interesting taste. If you feel the need to adjust the lavender, adjust down. Adding too much lavender makes your creation too perfumey. Enjoy!
