Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup sugar, granulated
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt, kosher
  • zest and juice of 2 limes
  • 1 ½ teaspoons lavender, dried
  • 5 tablespoons butter, diced into bits
  • ½ cup + 1 tablespoon milk, whole

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375° F. Blend together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, lime zest and lavender. Using a fork mix the butter into the flour mixture until the texture resembles a butter bits the size of small peas.

Step 2

Mix together the lime juice with the milk and add to the scone mixture. Mix just until dough just comes together.

Step 3

On a lightly floured surface, shape dough into a disc shape about 8-9 inch in diameter. Using a long chef’s knife slice the disc into eight even sized pieces and place the scones on a baking sheet lined with a silpat or parchment paper. Brush with remaining tablespoon of milk and sprinkle the tops lightly with some coarse sugar.

Step 4

Bake the scones for about 20 minutes or until they are just slightly golden on the top. Serve the scones with some butter and honey, and make it a light breakfast with some fruit salad and yogurt.
