Lavender Scone

I wanted to make a more savory tasting scone than a sweet one. This was to take the place of a biscuit or bread with my dinner.

Mix together:
2 cups wheat pastry flour
1 tbsp of baking powder
3/4 tsp of salt

Cut in [like making a pie crust]:
6 tbsp of butter (cold and cut into pieces)

Once this is all incorporated drizzle on top:
2-3 tablespoons of Honey, work into the flour mixture.

Then add:
1 tbsp of culinary lavender

Mix together with fork:
1/3 cup heavy cream
2 eggs

Make a well in the dry mix and add cream and egg mixture. Stir together from pulling from the sides to the center lightly until it forms a dough. Don't over mix.
On a lightly floured board or counter top roll out into a square that's about 6-7" Cut into 4 sqs. the the sqs. into triangle making 8 total. You can also use a biscuit cutter. Bake on a cookie sheet with parchment at 400 about 20- 25 minutes.
You can also brush the tops with cream before baking.

I LOVE scones and will HAVE to try making them! Lavendar, though?? I didn't know there was such a thing as culinary lavendar - where do you get it?? You have to remember, you are far more advanced than I at health food things and herbs, etc. I go to the grocery store and that's about it!!

This sounds delicious! In my family, we love having bread with our dinner. This would be a nice change. I too never knew that there was a culinary lavender!!! Interesting!
