My favorite time of day is tea-time and especially if these Blackberry and Lemon Scones are on the menu. These are so easy to make, with fresh blackberries and lemon zest added to the soft and buttery scone dough then brushed with a buttermilk and raw sugar egg wash and finally glazed with a very special lavender glaze made from milk, butter, powdered sugar and dried lavenders that give this sweet treat a really enhanced finishing touch!
