Lightly sweetened and a mild flavor of lavender infused in these simple Honey Lavender Scones makes a delicious snack to be enjoyed for brunch or with a hot a cup of tea.
This isn’t the first recipe I’ve made with dry lavender buds. Last Spring I made these Lavender Cream Puffs with a glaze that was infused with a hint of lavender.
I’m hooked on the mild flavor that is released then the buds are infused in liquid, and this time instead of steeping the lavender just for the flavor the buds are folded right into scones!
These scones are sweetened with just a couple of tablespoons of honey. When serving add an extra coating of honey or homemade lemon curd and rev up the flavors even more!
I’m adding these scones to our Easter brunch, but these treats are also lovely for a bridal or baby shower! Better yet, invite a couple of your friends over and treat yourselves to high tea!
Fancy and fun and super easy to make Honey Lavender Scones should be enjoyed all year long!
