These Earl Grey Lavender Scones are perfect for dipping in your coffee or tea. They have a floral flavor from the lavender with a hint of richness from the earl grey.

Lavender is one of those things that you either love or you hate. Personally I love it, but I can understand why people equate it with soap instead of food and that can be tough to get over. Another thing about lavender is that a little goes a very long way! These Earl Grey Lavender scones only have 1/2 tsp of lavender in them, but it is definitely the primary flavor.

The earl grey comes from opening actual tea bags and adding the grounds straight into the batter. Though it is the visible component of these scones the earl grey flavor is a subtle after thought in relation to the lavender.

So, what I’m saying is, these scones are for the lavender lovers out there!  I picked up dried culinary lavender flowers from my local World Market, but you can also get it on Amazon.

Earl Grey Lavender Scones from Scratch

Let’s make them!

You will mix them entirely in your food processor, starting with the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Next add in the lavender and earl grey and then the honey. At this point you will add the butter, be sure to use cold butter, I put it in the fridge for 10 minutes before using. Add the butter in 1 tbsp pieces, pulsing for 10 seconds in between each addition. Finally you add the heavy cream and vanilla extract and process until the batter starts to form a ball.

You will then gather the dough ball and place it on a lightly floured surface. Next roll out the batter to form a 1 inch thick by 6 inch wide circle. Slice the batter into 8 triangular pieces to form the scones. Transfer the scones to a prepared baking sheet and bake at 375°F for 16-18 minutes until the edges just begin to brown.

The easy powdered sugar glaze is optional. If you want to dress up your scones drizzle it on top once they are cooled.

The scones will keep up to a week in the refrigerator (if you like a moister scone) or on the counter (for dryer scones) in an airtight container. You can also wrap them individually and store the in the freezer to defrost and eat as desired.

Notes

*If you like dry scones, you can store them on the counter top covered in a layer of plastic wrap for up to a week, they will dry out more and more as time passes. If you prefer a moister scone, store them in the refrigerator in an air tight container for up to a week. Or individually wrap them and store them in an air tight container in the freezer, take out and defrost when you are ready to eat.
