Lavender Scones

These scones are the very definition of “lovely.” Fragrant, sophisticated, beautiful, yet utterly simple, they need nothing more than a smear of butter and a cup of tea to be just perfect, though serving them with a little pot of jam or some honey is quite nice too.

Total Cost of Ingredients $9.50

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet and set aside.

Mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar and culinary lavender in a bowl. Cut in butter, using 2 forks (alternatively, this can be done in the food processor).

In a separate bowl, beat together 1 egg and the half-and-half. Stir into the flour-butter mixture until a sticky dough forms.

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and use your floured hands to pat the dough out until it is 3/4” thick. Use a biscuit cutter or small glass to cut 3” rounds, re-rolling scraps until all the dough is used up.

Arrange the rounds on the prepared baking sheet.

Beat the remaining egg with 1/8 cup water to make an egg wash. Use a pastry brush to coat each scone with egg wash and top with a pinch of sugar and a sprinkle of lavender.

Bake for 13-15 minutes or until scones are light brown.

Serve with butter and/or jam.

Makes about 12 scones.
