Ingredients
  • 3 sticks butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon gin
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 3 teaspoons dried lavender
  • Pinch or 2 of salt
  • 2 to 3 egg yolks, beaten
  • 6 ounces goat cheese
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Mix the butter, sugar and gin together until thoroughly blended. Mix in the flour, lavender and salt until it gets doughy. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to 1/2 inch thick. Freeze for 10 minutes.

  • Roll the dough into about 24 little balls and dunk them in the beaten eggs. Put the balls on a silicone baking mat on a baking sheet and smash them with your thumb to make craters. Put some goat cheese in each crater. Bake until lightly golden on the edges, about 10 minutes.
