Try serving Red Star Tavern’s Lavender Poppyseed Cookies with vanilla crème brûlée.
Cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolks and sugar. Add in our, poppy seed and lavender.
Once dough is formed, roll it out and cut 11⁄2-inch x 1-inch cookies. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place cookies on a baking sheet and cook for 3 minutes. Rotate 180 degrees and cook for another 3 minutes to ensure even baking.
Cream butter and shortening. Add in sugar, salt and vanilla. Cream until light and fluffy.
Once cookies are cooled, spread a layer of cream between two cookies and press together to form a sandwich.
