Comforting and delicious Vanilla Lavender Scones! Tea Time anyone??

Vanilla Lavender Scones; comforting, simple, and delicious! The best breakfast or mid-day snack with tea...amazing!

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!

These are so cozy and comforting. Reminds me of high school history class when we all made scones…LONG before the days when I had ever cooked for fun.

These Vanilla Lavender Scones are a bit better, I must say!

I love the subtle lavender flavor. I added the purple food coloring for fun, but that is totally optional. It will taste the same without it :)

Let’s all be classy tea time friends!! Enjoy :)

Vanilla Lavender Scones

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp lavender buds
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp butter melted
  • 3 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • FOR GLAZE:
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • purple food coloring optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F and grease a scone pan with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, lavender buds, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Stir in egg, butter, whipping cream, and vanilla. A crumbly dough will come together.
  4. You can either use a scone pan or turn out your dough onto a prepared baking sheet and cut into wedges. I chose a pan for convenience.
  5. Bake about 18 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned and firm to the touch. They will rise slightly.
  6. Remove from oven, transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.
  7. While they are cooling, prepare your glaze. Mix together the powdered sugar with the milk until you achieve your desired consistency. For a more opaque glaze, add more sugar. Add food coloring if you desire, but that is completely optional.
  8. Drizzle cooled scones with glaze and allow to set for 15 minutes prior to serving. Enjoy!

These are soooo pretty Becky! I love the photos too! And of course I would happily snack on one (or two..) of these! haha

Your photos are beautiful! I'm working on starting a blog myself:) I own a bakery/cafe and one of our specialties is scones. I make lemon lavender scones- very similar to yours. I should try it with vanilla next week. Have you tried using cold, cubed butter and buttermilk in place of the cream? The results are very large, light, ever so fluffy scones. We use 2/3 cup buttermilk for that amount of flour and 4 TBSP cold butter that we cut in to the dough. I'm excited to try your vanilla lavender variety :)
