I was thumbing through an old Bon Appetit magazine and I came across this unique recipe. Ironically I had all of the ingredients on hand including the lavender (random, I know). The lavender was left over from this recipe. If you can't find dried lavender buds in your local market, most spice shops have them. I got mine from a spice shop in Silverlake. Also, I have a new love for whole vanilla beans. I'm not sure why it took me this long to use them! They are expensive but worth every penny.
