Day 138: Lavender Scones

Lavender scones are so tasty and delicious. Not to mention remarkably easy.

These do harden as they cool. But to make sure the scones are done, insert a toothpick, and if it comes clean you can take them out of the oven.


These are perfect for picnics, breakfasts, or just for a snack.


Just like my Banana Apple Muffins, this is super easy.


And you can choose to use the icing or not. I personally love the icing, because it's full of lemon, but it's not required.


Even though this is a sticky dough, don't add too much flour. With a hint of lemon, these lavender scones are so irresistible.
