English Lavender Scones

  • Author: Lauren
  • Yield: 10-12 scones 1x


Units Scale
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter (softened)
  • 2/3 cup whole milk OR heavy cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar into a food processor and pulse to combine.
  2. Add the softened butter to the processor and pulse until the butter is mixed in well. Move to a large mixing bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the whole milk (or heavy cream) and the egg. Save one to two tablespoons of milk/egg mixture to brush the scones with before baking.
  4. Add to the dry ingredients and combine with a rubber spatula until the dough beings to form. Add dried lavender and mix a few more times until evenly incorporated.  
  5. Move your dough to a floured surface and knead until it forms a disc. Pat the dough out into a circle and use a round cutter to cut out 10-12 circles.
  6. Place onto a parchment lined baking sheet, brush with milk/egg mixture, and bake for 11-12 minutes or until lightly golden on top.
