Scones with Lavender
I have totally fallen in love with lavender lately. I have a lavender mist for our sheets to make going to bed sweeter, I’m OBSESSED with our Lavender Lemonade, and now these pretty little Vanilla Lavender Scones.
Perfect for tea time, breakfast, a mid-day snack, or anytime in between!
I love the subtle lavender flavor. I added some purple food coloring, but that is totally optional. It will taste the same without it. These scones make for a fun Easter Brunch idea!

Lavender has such a specific flavor. It’s floral and sweet, without being too overpowering. It’s often described as slightly herbal and earthy with hints of rosemary and mint. It’s such a great flavor for the springtime.
Once you have glazed your scones, let them set and cool completely before placing them into an airtight container separated with parchment. They will keep well for 2 days at room temperature or up to 1 week in the fridge.
Yes! If you want to extend the life of your scones, freezing is a great option. You can freeze them glazed or unglazed. Freeze in an airtight container as above and they will keep well for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge or at room temperature.
- For a more vibrant lavender flavor, mix the lavender and sugar together ahead of time, pressing the buds into the sugar with your fingers to release their oils.
- I like to bake these in a scone pan for ease, but you can turn them out onto a baking sheet as well.
- The scones are baked when they are firm and ever so slightly browned.
- Allow your scones to completely cool before glazing them.
These vanilla lavender scones are all kinds of delicious! They are perfectly subtle and so wonderfully flavored. I love how quick and easy they are to make too!
