Did you miss me? I took a 18 month hiatus to get my life together. I’d be lying if I said I missed this during my time away. THIS became too much, too fast and everything I love about cooking and food photography wasn’t fun anymore. Why? Because I allowed people to tell me what to do with my dream. This website was created because my snapchat DMs were in straight shambles night after night and this was a way to give my viewers the recipes and maintain normalcy in my life. But after a while, auditions, recipe requests and interviews took over… lesson learned and I’m better because of all it. I know what I want for myself and for my food business. Y’all either gon’ take it, or leave it. I actually don’t care if you leave it because it means less things for me to do!
At any rate, something that I’ve been working to perfect for a while is marrying lavender and rose in baked goods. They both compliment each other so well but can easily overpower breads, cakes and cookies. I finally came to the conclusion that nothing tastes bad in cake batter and I’m so elated to share this recipe with you. I’m calling it my Love on Top cookie because it is fancy, tastes great and makes you want to pussy pop on a handstand!
Let me know what you think.
1 ½ c. all-purpose flour
1 ½ c. boxed white cake mix
½ c. white chocolate chips
¾ c. butter, softened
¾ c. packed light brown sugar
¼ c. dried lavender
¼ c. dried rose petals, chopped
½ c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. corn starch
½ tsp. baking soda
1 egg, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pinch of Salt
Mix the lavender and rose petals together and set aside.
Sift the flour, cake mix, salt and baking soda together and set aside.
Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugars (brown & white) together until smooth.
Add the egg and combine. Scrape the sides and add the vanilla.
Slowly add the flour/cake mix to the "wet"ingredients (butter/sugar/egg) until combined. Scrape the sides as needed.
Add rose petals, lavender and white chocolate chips and mix until the chips are fully incorporated.
Using a cookie scoop or spoon, make dough balls of equal size and refrigerate for at least one hour. When the dough has harden, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Bake cookies for approximately 14 minutes until the edge of the cookies have begun to turn brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 3-5 minutes.
Garnish with lavender and rose petals [because you’re officially fancy as fuck].
Serve with milk and enjoy!
