June is here, along with lavender season. Recently, we (as in me and Ellie) made these super simple and scrumptious lavender scones. Each buttery bite has just the right hint of lavender, herbal and refreshing. They pair perfectly with some sweet peach jam. You probably already have all of the ingredients in your house and culinary lavender can be found in a well-stocked super market or online. If you can’t find specifically labeled culinary lavender, you can just use organic lavender (which is what I did).
Prep Time: 8 minutes Bake Time: 7 minutes
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon cane sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon organic lavender flowers
1 egg (for wash)
Preheat oven to 450F. Mix together dry ingredients. Rub butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles bread crumbs. Mix in milk and knead into soft dough. Fold in lavender flowers. Use a spoon or ice cream scooper to scoop out balls of dough onto wax paper in a baking tray. Flatten each balls lightly and brush with egg wash. Baking for 7 minutes at 450F until golden brown.
