Lavender recipe's

The lavender is growing right now so I like to give you some recipe's. First a cream cheese pie with lavender, you have to try this one it's to die for:

Cream cheese pie with lavender honey

Tea biscuit's 250 grams
Melted butter 75 grams
3 Tables spoons fresh lavender wrapped in a cotton bag
Lavender honey 180 grams
whipped cream 300 ml
cream cheese 250 grams

And this is how you make it:
Crumble the biscuits and put the melted butter on it. Put it in a backingvorm and push it a bit flat with the back of a spoon. Place it in the refrigerator.
Mix 2 and a half tablespoons boiled water with 2 tea spoons of the lavender honey and hang the cotton bag with the lavender in it for 15 minutes.
Put in another bowl the cream cheese and the rest of the lavender honey. Mix it well until it's smooth.
whip the whipped cream and put it carefully through the cream cheese put it on the biscuits and let it stand for three to four hours in the refrigerator.

Hello, Jenny! I'm a long type fan of your blog though I've never commented it before.
Today I've tried your formula of the Blue Wonder. When I added water into the alcohol solution of EOs, the mixture became turbid - actually, it became almost white in colour. It is a normal reaction? :)
