Lavender Honey Scones

Soft, buttery and fluffy on the inside, with crisp crumbly edges. These delightful Lavender Honey Scones are practically perfect in every way, having a slight taste of the floral lavender, bright lemon, and sweet honey. These are perfect for Mother’s Day or any other Spring occasion!

With all of the fresh produce and flowers ready to buy, we’ve been loving baking with all the spring flavors! Lavender may seem kinda different to put in baked goods, but it really is amazing. It has a mellow flavor and pairs perfectly with the warm, buttery scone. Also, it makes the scone more fancy, and ideal for a tea party.

Grating the Butter:

We always grate our butter when making scones, because it makes the process of cutting the butter into the flour mixture so much easier! And it’s the key to a perfectly flaky and buttery scone. Be sure to use frozen butter. Keeping the dough as cold as possible prevents over-spreading.

The Lemon Glaze:

These scones are great by themselves, or served with butter and jam (like blackberry jam), but we love drizzling on some lemon glaze, which adds that extra pizazz! This glaze is pretty basic made with just powdered sugar, lemon juice and milk.

Also, if you love scones just as much as we do, you are going to love our Cranberry Orange Scones, and our Irish Soda Bread, which is basically like a giant scone in loaf form!

Storing:

These scones should last 1-2 days in an airtight container at room temp. If storing them in the fridge, they can last up to a week.

SO. FLAKEY.

For the Lavender Honey Scones:

-2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

-1/2 cup granulated sugar

-1 Tbsp. baking powder

-1/2 tsp. salt

-2 tsp. dried culinary lavender

-1/2 cup frozen butter (1 stick)

-1/2 cup buttermilk

-2 large eggs

-2 tsp. vanilla extract

-1 tsp. honey

-zest from 1 lemon (about 1 Tbsp.)

For the Lemon Glaze:

-2-3 Tbsp. milk

-1 tsp. lemon juice

-1 + 1/4 cups powdered sugar


Instructions

To Make the Lavender Scones:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Combine 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1 Tbsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt and 2 tsp. dried culinary lavender.

3. Grate 1/2 cup frozen butter, and add it to the flour mixture. Combine with a pastry cutter, fork, or your fingers until pea-sized crumbs. Don’t over-mix it. Keep it in the fridge while mixing the wet ingredients.

4. Whisk together 1/2 cup buttermilk, 2 eggs, 2 tsp. vanilla extract, and 1 tsp. honey, and the zest from 1 lemon.

5. Pour the liquid mixture into the butter mixture, and stir it all together until roughened.

6. Empty the dough onto a clean floured counter, and work the dough into a disk shape (about 6 inches.)

7. With a bench scraper, cut the disk into 8 even wedges.

8. Transfer the wedges onto the baking sheet, making sure there is space in between each one, and lightly brush each scone with egg wash.

9. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

10. Let cool for 15 minutes before drizzling on the glaze.

 

To Make the Lemon Glaze:

1. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together 1 + 1/4 cups powdered sugar, 1 tsp. lemon juice, and 2-3 Tbsp. milk. Slowly add in the milk, until you get the right consistency.
