Lavender Almond Scones

Oooooooooo so fancy! These are perfect with a cup of white tea. They are soft and just a little crisp and boy do they smell great! We've been on a scone kick lately. They are just so easy to make. And you can whip these bad boys up in no time!

Here are the ingredients:

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 tablespoon of dried lavender 
  • 1/2 teaspoon on baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of cold butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup of buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon of almond extract
  • 1 tablespoon of butter / vanilla extract

 

And for the glaze: 

  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon of butter / vanilla extract
