Lemon and Lavender Scones

Recipe by  

"These lovely old-fashioned scones are very light; they will literally melt in your mouth! The recipe is very versatile. Substitute your favorite flavor of yogurt and add a tablespoon or two of a chopped complementary fruit, raisins, or currants instead of the lavender. Serve with honey, fruit preserves, or if you're lucky enough to be able to get it, clotted cream."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Stir baking soda and yogurt together in a bowl.
  3. Sift flour, 1/3 cup sugar, and baking powder together in a bowl. Cut cold butter into flour mixture using a pastry cutter or two forks until mixture is crumbly.
  4. Mix yogurt mixture, 2 tablespoons melted butter, egg, lavender, and lemon zest in a separate bowl. Stir yogurt-lavender mixture into flour mixture until just moistened.
  5. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead 8 to 10 times, adding more flour if dough is too sticky.
  6. Divide dough into 2 pieces and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Pat and shape each piece into a 6-inch circle. Score each circle into 6 wedges using a sharp floured knife. Brush tops with 1 tablespoon melted butter; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon white sugar.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until scones are just golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven, break into wedges, and cool on a wire rack.

Maybe the most delicious scone I've ever had in my life. I used whole wheat flour in the picture I posted above. Had to add a tiny bit extra moisture but I'm not the most accurate flour measurer. Also extended my cook time a bit to about 18 minutes. They are so fluffy and awesome even though whole wheat. The lemon yogurt with baking soda was a great idea! I also upped the lavender a bit but maybe wouldn't have to. I used about three teaspoons and they're very strong.

This recipe was great! I divided it in half, and realized very near the end but I didn't have a lemon, so I used orange zest but lemon yogurt. I'm enjoying a scone right now, and it is delicious! If you're looking for suggestions, I would bake them a little longer. I would also add a little more lavender!
