Joy Wallace's Lemon and Lavender Scones

Mother's Day, Breakfast in Bed

Treat Mom to Breakfast in Bed with Lemon and Lavender Scones right from the oven, a good cup of coffee and a sweet card - better than diamonds! Here is an easy-to-follow recipe, compliments a Joy Wallace, to show Mom how much she is loved.

First preheat oven to 350 and gather the ingredients. You'll need:

2 C All Purpose Flour
1/3 C Sugar
1 T Baking Powder
1/2 t Salt
4 oz Butter
1/4 C Heavy Cream
1 t Dry Lavender
2 t Grated Lemon Zest

Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Rub the dry ingredients with the lemon zest to extract the flavor. Cut the cold butter into cubes and then cut the cubed butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter until incorporated. The result should look like pea-sized crumbles. Mix in the lavender and heavy cream just until moist - don't over-mix the dough. Scoop out about 15 even-sized balls of dough, place on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for 1 hour. Bake at 350 until light golden in color, about 10 to 12 minutes.
