  3. Crumble the lavender between your fingers into a mixing bowl.
  4. Add in the butter, sugar, salt, vanilla, and baking powder; beat until mixture is light and fluffy.
  5. Beat in the eggs; then beat in the flour.
  6. Drop the dough by teaspoonful onto the prepared baking sheets.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes, or until they’re lightly browned at the edges.
