Lavender scone recipe. Lavender scones are one of my daughter’s favorite treats and they are mine also.
Many years ago, my daughter and I used to have Tea Time on Tuesday afternoons. We would site in the living room of our 1901 house and have tea and scones. My daughter was homeschooled at the time and we used this time to discuss literature and poetry. It was our favorite time of the week.
My daughter is grown, has graduated from college and has been in the working world for a few years now. We still enjoy tea time and scones though. I knew the lavender scone recipe would be one I enjoyed making for both of us.
Last year, I visited a small lavender farm here in the Central Virginia area. It was there that I purchased, what I feel is, the best culinary lavender around. I love purchasing local grown foods and herbs.
I had never cooked with lavender before, but while touring the farm, we were given a sample of lavender lemonade and lavender ice cream. I was hooked and knew I wanted to try a few other recipes with lavender as an ingredient.
Here is my Lavender Scone recipe:
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup plus 2 TBL sugar, divided
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
- 2 TLB dried lavender
- 3/4 cup plus 1 TBL heavy whipping cream, divided
- Preheat oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a Silpat.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until crumbly.
- Add lavender; mix well.
- Add 3/4 cup cream, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Using a 2 inch round cutter, cut scones, and place on prepared baking sheet.
- Brush sones with remaining 1 TBL cream and sprinkle with remaining 2 TBL sugar.
- Bake for 14 - 16 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Let cool before serving.
