Lavender Scones

I continue my love o'lavender with our take on scones.

The Internet is packed with lavender scone recipes. (Obviously you know that.) Some recipes have oats while others have walnuts. Some require buttermilk while others milk. All I wanted to make was a 'plain lavender scone'. So....after becoming overwhelmed, I decided to take my own whirl at this. The ingredients are basic. I admit this is a sweet scone & could even pass for a great cookie recipe if they're rolled thinner.

2 cups of flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 stick of salted butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
5 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. fresh lavender buds (I wouldn't use more or the flavor will become overpowering)

Combine all your ingredients. Roll the dough to 1/2 an inch or thicker. Cut your shapes & place them on a floured or non-stick baking pan. Bake at 400 for 12-15minutes. That's all!
These tasty & flavorful treats are a must. They pair great with Earl Grey or Chamomile tea.

Hope you enjoy!
