As you may of noticed, the Sunday Slow Scoopers are freezing our way through some really yummy flavors in "The Perfect Scoop" by David Lebovitz
I can't believe we are already at week four of our fifteen week project. Week four is Nancy's week and she picked Lavender-Honey Ice Cream, p. 64.
I called my aunt, who raises culinary lavender on her ranch in No. California and ask her to send me some. Then I started thinking about how I would present the finished product for my photos and what bit of sweet I might bake to go with it.
As making ice cream gets easier and easier, the way it's served seems to have become more important to me. I have one of those stemless martini sets that seems just perfect for filling with lavender. Because I think lemon and lavender are made for each other, I made Lavender Lemon Cookies to go with the ice cream. So, I decided to add lemon slices to the serving dish.
Some of the cookies I left plain because I really liked the way the lavender and lemon peel speckled them. But, I also made a simple lavender-honey frosting to ice some of them. I like that look as well, and the icing is delicious.
