In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, vanilla, and lavender, and mix well. Combine the flour and baking powder and add to lavender mixture, stirring until well blended. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a un-greased baking sheet.
( I used a baking stone) Bake 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned on edges. Cool on baking sheet for a minute or two, then transfer to a rack to finish cooling.
