Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons dried lavender buds
  • 2 tablespoons Earl Grey tea leaves
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, for egg wash
  • Lavender glaze (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, dried lavender buds, and Earl Grey tea leaves.
  2. Add the cold, cubed unsalted butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the whole milk and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; the dough should be slightly sticky.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead it a few times to bring it together.
  6. Pat the dough into a circle about 1 inch thick. Use a round cutter to cut out scones and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Beat the egg and brush it over the tops of the scones for a golden finish.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for 12-15 minutes, or until the scones are golden brown.
  9. Let the scones cool on a wire rack before drizzling them with lavender glaze if desired.
