Lavender Shortbread Cookies

I used powdered English Lavender flowers, mint extract, lemon juice, 1 stick of butter and milk instead of what the original recipe calls for. Chocolate goes well with lavender and add more liquid to prevent the dough being too dry. Eating lavender will make you sleepy, so its best to eat these in the evening.
