Lavender Lemon Cookies

2 cups flour
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest
1 or 2 tablespoon dried lavender flowers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Whisk or beat in the egg, lemon juice until well blended.In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, cream of tartar, lemon zest, and lavender. Add the dry mixture to the creamed mixture and blend together to form a soft ball. Drop by teaspoon onto a nonstick lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. I was able to get about 24 cookies out of this batch.
