Have you ever tried cooking with lavender? Let’s face it, not many people have because they probably associate the French herb with air freshener rather than food. I think of my Buttermilk Lavender Scones recipe as a kind of gateway to cooking with lavender. You are going to love them!

Start by making the dough by mixing wet ingredients with dry ingredients. You will end up with quite a sticky dough that can be hard to work with. If your dough is very sticky, try adding a bit more flour to make it easier to work with. Cut into scones and chill for a while before baking. Make a lemon lavender icing by steeping lavender in warm milk or cream. Strain the lavender and add lemon juice and confectioners’ sugar. Drizzle the icing over the top of the scones and enjoy!

To make Buttermilk Lavender Scones, you will need the following ingredients:
