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!
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.
