  • 5 oz (150g) butter
  • 11 oz (350g) confectionery sugar
  • 11/2 oz Lavender honey
  • 31/2 oz (100g) flour
  • 5 oz (150g) orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp Ritz Escoffier lavender flowers


Melt the butter.

Mix icing sugar, flour, the lavender honey, and the flowers.

Add the orange juice and mix carefully.

Then incorporate the melted butter. Store in a cool place.

Line the baking sheets with non-stick parchment paper.

Distribute spoonfuls of the batter over the paper.

Bake at 375 F (180 C) until the tiles are an even golden brown.

Allow to cool slightly, then form and store like almond tile cookies.


If possible, make tile cookie batter a day before baking cookies.

Tile cookies do not keep well; it's best to make them strictly as needed and as little in advance as possible.

Serving Size: Makes 25 to 30 cookies
