 These sweet, fragrant scones are a great way to start your day or serve with tea when you need a relaxing break. Make sure you use 100% organic lavender (as you don’t want to ingest pesticides). If you don’t have lavender in your garden, purchase culinary lavender at supermarkets or natural food shops.

Sweet Lavender Scones Janice CoxIngredients

  • 3 cups flour 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried lavender buds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup (1 & ½ sticks) cold butter cut into cubes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a food processor, or by hand, mix together all of the dry ingredients.
  4. Add the cold butter and process or mix by hand until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  5. Add the vanilla to the buttermilk.
  6. In a large bowl, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until you have a “shaggy” dough.
  7. Transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead a few times, until a dough forms. Divide the dough in half, and pat into two 8 inch rounds.
  8. Cut the rounds into 8 wedges each and place the wedges on a large cookie sheet.
