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!
Lavender Scone Recipe
These lavender 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!
Gather the following ingredients to make your scones.
- Heavy whipping cream
- Dried lavender buds (see below on type)
- All-purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Unsalted butter
- Small saucepan
- Large bowl
- Pastry blender
- Baking sheet and parchment paper (optional)

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!
What Type Of Lavender Should I Buy For Scones?
I purchased my lavender buds from World Market, which are English Lavender and the preferred bud for infusing flavor.
French lavender is often used for soaps and perfumes.

Could half and half be substituted for heavy cream?
Yes. You should get the same results. Hope you love these scones!
Are these ok to be left out overnight and eaten later or should they be refrigerated? Are they just as good refrigerated and eaten later? I want to make some for a morning “drive-they” wedding shower (COVID-19!) so I have to make them the night before.
That should have been “drive-thru” shower.
They can be left overnight and eaten later. If you can add the glaze the day of enjoying I believe you will get the best results. What a wonderful way to celebrate!
I found them just as good the day after – a couple of days, even!
Good to hear this, Sarah! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
Hi, maybe a silly question but is this recipe suppose to say 2 1/2 cups all purpose flower? Would love to make these!
Whoops! Yes, 2 1/2 cups of flour is the correct amount.
How long is the cream and lavender mix supposed to cool for?
Hi Mollie! To get at room temperature it will take about 30 minutes.
That honey drizzled over the scones is so pretty! What a great recipe Sandra!

Oh my, this looks heavenly!! Thank you for the recipe, can’t wait to try it!
I absolutely love the essence of lavender. So aromatic and delicious! This recipe looks like my favorite breakfast!
How adorable are these! I love that you’ve cut them into triangles too. I happen to have some dried lavender sitting around waiting to be made into something – you’ve inspired me!
These look amazing! Where can you buy dried lavender buds?
Thanks 🙂 I bought mine at World Market. It comes in a small plastic container labeled with World Market’s brand near the spices!
