7. Optional: sprinkle some additional dried lavender on top of the biscuits for extra flavor and a beautiful presentation.

8. Bake the biscuits for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.

9. Once done, remove the biscuits from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack.

10. Serve and enjoy your delicious lavender shortbread biscuits with a cup of tea or coffee. You can also store them in an airtight container for up to a week.
