    Blueberry Lavender Scones

    Ingredients

    • 3 cups (750 mL) all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 cup (60 mL) sugar
    • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) baking powder
    • 1 tsp (5 mL) dried lavender, chopped (or 2 tsp fresh)
    • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
    • 3/4 cup 180 mL) unsalted butter, cut into pieces and chilled
    • 3/4 cup +1 tbsp (195 mL) milk
    • 1/4 cup (60 mL) honey
    • 2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup (2 mL) dried blueberries
    • Icing sugar for dusting

    Directions

    01

    Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).

    02

    Place all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl or in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Cut butter into dry ingredients until it resembles coarse meal. Stir together 3/4 cup (180 mL) milk, honey, and vanilla and add to dough. Mix just until dough comes together and stir in dried blueberries.

    03

    Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough twice to a 1-in (2.5-cm) thickness, each time folding in half (this is the secret to a flaky scone).

    04

    Now roll dough to 3/4-in (1.9-cm) thickness and cut desired shapes. Place on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet and brush with remaining milk. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until tops are nicely browned.
