Blackberry Lavender Cake

Tessa Huff’s blackberry lavender cake (featured and slightly tweaked by Sally’s Baking Addiction) has delicate lavender flavor in all the right ways. Homemade lavender milk and lavender syrup aid in that lightly floral taste—all while the blackberry jam cuts through to add a layer of rich, fruity flavor and texture. Mm, mm, mm!

Lavender and Lemon Biscochitos

Biscochitos are the state cookie for our home state of New Mexico. They are traditionally made with anise seeds, but I substituted lavender and lemon in this biscochitos recipe. The result is intriguing and delicious! I have also made these with lemon and dried thyme and they were scrumptious. —Marla Clark, Albuquerque, New Mexico
