I followed this recipe - just wanted to mention that I couldn't make the dough up without adding a drop of milk to bind it. I also added a good dollop of honey and some more lavender than stated. Rather than dust with icing sugar I used caster sugar. I won't be making these biscuits again, hard and tasteless, really. - 11 Jul 2012
