Lavender Snickerdoodles

Lavender Snickerdoodles

I love Snickerdoodle cookies. The warm sugar cookie with cinnamon and sugar reminds me of my Gram when I was little. I decided to change them up just a bit - Fangboner style. Lavender gives them just an extra special touch - perfect with a cup of tea. Enjoy!


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground lavender
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tb white sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon


    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

    Cream together butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar, the eggs and the vanilla. Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, soda, lavender and salt. Shape dough by rounded spoonfuls into balls.

    Mix the 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon. Roll balls of dough in mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets

    Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until set but not too hard. Remove immediately from baking sheets.
