  • 175 g Plain Flour sifted
  • 85 g Semolina
  • 75 g Superfine Sugar
  • 175 g Vegan Butter at room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ½ teaspoon Lavender, fresh, finely chopped flowers Optional


  • Preheat oven to 150c.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together all the ingredients until they form a cohesive dough. I used a wooden spoon and did it by hand, but feel free to use your mixer
  • Lightly sprinkle a work surface with a little sugar and turn out your dough
  • Roll out until you have a rectangle that is approx ¾" thick.
  • Place this gently onto your greased baking sheet and prick all over with a fork.
  • Bake for between 45 minutes to an hour, until it feels firm to the touch, and no longer soft. Make sure it doesn't overcolour.
  • Remove from the oven, leave to cool for 10 minutes, then carefully cut into fingers. Leave to cool completely.
