This weekend I hosted my second workshop at the studio. It was a fun morning with some of my favorite ladies. I served Iced Coffee and Grapefruit Mojitos with Dill and Cheese Cream Puffs, Citrus Parfaits and these yummy Lemon Lavender Scones.
I love scones, they are quick and easy to make and I haven't found a person yet that doesn't love a warm scone. The recipe is a version of my Lemon Coconut Scones. I pretty much love anything lemon. Last year I fell in love with Lavender Lemonade, so I decided I needed make a new treat with this combo.
Oh and you probably recognize the tablecloth. The full how-to for this easy-to-make DIY Tropical Foliage Tablecloth can be found here.
Lemon Lavender Scones
2 cups flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
2 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. of dried lavender
Zest of one lemon (put 1/2 tsp. aside for glaze)
1/2 cup cold butter
2/3 cup milk
Combine the flour, cream of tartar, b. powder, sugar, salt, lemon zest and lavender. Cut in the butter with a pastry knife (see my biscuit recipe for more tips). Add the milk and toss until just barely combined. Divide into two portions. Pat into a circle 1 inch thick. Cut into 6 wedges. Place the scones individually on a baking sheet. Bake at 400F for about 12 mins or until just golden brown on the edges.
Juice of one lemon
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
about 1 cup powdered sugar
While the scones are still warm dip the tops in the glaze and sprinkle with a little more lavender.
