Honey lavender scones lightly sweetened and infused with lavender buds. These scones are a delicious! Enjoy for brunch or with a hot a cup of tea any time.
Honey Lavender Scones
This isn’t the first recipe I’ve made with dry lavender buds.
You might remember these Lavender Cream Puffs that I made last spring. I topped these with a glaze infused with a hint of lavender.
I’m hooked on the mild flavor that is released when lavender buds are infused in liquid.
For this lavender scone recipe the lavender buds are folded into the scones instead of infusing the flavor!
