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
- 3 to 5 tablespoons of milk
Add your lavender to your food processor.
Add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar. Pulse a few times to mix well.
Add in your cubed butter, and pulse until it resembles cornmeal.
Add in the buttermilk, egg and extracts. Process until it comes together into a ball of dough.
When the dough has formed, turn it out onto a floured work surface. Flatten it into a circle.
Cut the dough into 8 wedges.
Place wedges on a baking sheet, or pan lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes.
While the scones are baking make your glaze. Add 1 cup of powdered sugar to a bowl.
Add your extracts.
Then add in 3 tablespoons of milk. Mix well, add a tablespoon at a time more if needed.
They're ready when they have browned slightly on the tops.
Drizzle the glaze over the tops while warm. Garnish with a little lavender if you like.
