Light and buttery scones filled with fresh lavender blossoms. These lavender scones are perfect with a cup of tea for an afternoon snack.
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lavender buds
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup butter, cubed
  • ¾ cup cold buttermilk
  • ½ tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg, beaten
For brushing
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • Granulated sugar for sprinkling
  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all purpose flour, fresh lavender buds, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well incorporated.
  3. Add cubed butter to the flour and cut them into the flour. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to break the butter until the flour butter mixture appears crumbly.
  4. In a small bowl, gently whisk together a beaten egg, buttermilk, and vanilla. Pour this mixture into the flour mixture. Stir to mix until dough forms.
  5. Place the dough onto a floured surface and knead several times before rolling the dough out into one inch thickness.
  6. Cut the dough into triangles or use a cookie cutter to form circles.
  7. Place scones onto the baking sheet. Brush the top of the scones with the beaten egg. Sprinkle granulated sugar on top.
  8. Bake the scones for 15-18 minutes until the tops turned brown.
  9. Serve the scones warm.
