Lavender Scones

These make an excellent snack with a cup of tea or hot chocolate. My daughter loves them. I have to agree with her.

scone

1 tsp. chopped dried lavender buds
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda.
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

In a medium size bowl , mix the dry ingredients together.

Add the sour cream and stir with a large spoon until the dry ingredients are damp. (about 20 seconds)

This dough is very light. Turn onto a floured surface and knead very gently, 8 to 10 times. Roll or pat into a round shape that is 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick.
Flour your bowl scraper or spatula and cut into 4 pie shaped pieces.
Flour your spatula again and gently lift each scone onto a lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Try topping them with honey lavender butter.
