Vanilla Lavender Scones

Lavender is known for it's soothing, relaxing abilities. But as much as you love the scent of lavender in essential oils and fragrances, did you know that it's also edible?  


The fresh flower can be used as a fresh herb in many recipes, creating a smooth, floral taste. For baked goods, it complements sugar and spice quite nicely. To create a tasty treat that also looks and smells amazing, these Vanilla Lavender Scones are it. The perfect complement to your favorite coffee or tea, these scones make for an impressive brunch recipe as well. Make these for your next tea time or brunch spread! 

 

 

Ingredients
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lavender buds
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

 

For the Glaze:

  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Purple food coloring (optional)
Directions

Preheat oven to 325°F and grease a scone pan with nonstick spray. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, lavender buds, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Stir in egg, butter, whipping cream, and vanilla. A crumbly dough will come together.

You can either use a scone pan or turn out your dough onto a prepared baking sheet and cut into wedges. I chose a pan for convenience.

Bake about 18 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned and firm to the touch. They will rise slightly.

Remove from oven, transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely. While they are cooling, prepare your glaze. Mix together the powdered sugar with the milk until you achieve your desired consistency. For a more opaque glaze, add more sugar. Add food coloring if you desire, but that is completely optional.

Drizzle cooled scones with glaze and allow to set for 15 minutes prior to serving. Enjoy!

Makes: 8 scones
