Lavender Scones

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lavender florets
           - or -
          1 teaspoon dried culinary lavender, roughly chopped
  • 2/3 cup milk, plus extra for glazing

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease and flour a large baking sheet.

Sift the baking powder and the flour together in a large mixing bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and lavender, reserving a pinch to sprinkle over top of the scones before baking.

Add enough milk to make a soft, sticky dough, knead briefly on a well floured surface. Shape the dough into a round about 1" thick. Using a pastry cutter stamp out 12 scones. (I cut mine with a knife into wedges).

Place scones on prepared baking sheet, brush tops with a little milk and sprinkle on the reserved chopped lavender.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes until golden. Serve warm with cream (clotted, if you can come by it) and jam.
