I was in the mood for cookies last week. Those were a present for someone who's having a pretty stressful time at the moment. Lavender is supposed to have a relaxing effect. A glass of milk and some cookies always help, I thought...

125g soft butter
80g brown sugar
15g rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
100g white chocolate
about 1 tbsp fresh or dried lavender buds
Beat butter and sugar. Then add the egg and beat until creamy. Mix flour, rolled oats, baking powder and salt and add to your batter. Roughly chop chocolate and, together with the lavender buds, add to the batter. Form a roll of about 5cm diameter out of your dough and put in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Take the dough out of the freezer, cut into about 1cm thick slices and put onto the tray. Bake in the middle of the oven for about ten minutes.
