Buttermilk Scones with Lavender and Lavender Honey

Buttermilk Scones with Lavender and Lavender Honey

Makes 1 dozen scones

1 ¾ cups sifted all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 ½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

¼ cup shortening

¼ cup butter

½ cup buttermilk

1 tablespoon lavender blossoms (dried) or 2 tablespoon fresh flowers

 Preheat oven to 450 degrees F

Heat buttermilk to warm, add lavender & remove from heat.  Steep for about 20 minutes.  Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.  Cut in shortening and butter with a pastry blender until particles are the size of rice kernels. 

Add the buttermilk and lavender mixture, stir until dough forms into a ball.

Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly with fingertips about 8 times.  Divide dough in half and shape each into a round about ½ inch thick.  Cut each round into 6 wedge-shaped pieces.  Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes till the top is lightly browned.  Serve warm with butter and lavender honey.
