I loved the looks of your lavender hot chocolate so much that it inspired me to make caramel shortbreads topped with lavender. Yum!

I'm in love with the little sprinkling of crystallized lavender on top. The tart itself looks delicious too, of course. Where do you buy your dried lavender?

I love that little individual pie box. I think I would need two slices though and a big glass of milk! I have been seeing so many recipes with lavender I really need to try one soon, would like to try this pie maybe a la mode with lavender honey icecream.
