Lavender Sugar

Experimenting here at the castle.  I read about making lavender sugar in the most recent issue of Keepers at Home magazine.  And since this lovely, lovely plant resides in our backyard,
I thought I would give it a try.  You take 2 c. sugar, combine with 2 T. lavender blossoms, and let sit for a couple of weeks.  Then you can either strain out the lavender, or put both the sugar and the blossoms in the blender to combine. 

Article author Eileen D. Allen recommends using this in baked goods, notably sugar cookies.

Has anyone else ever used lavender in their cooking?  Please share.
