Hello Food Lovers :),

If you love eating scones and have been thinking about baking some, I have a lovely recipe that I would like to share with you. I found this sweet lavendar scones while flipping through my Bon Appetit Magazine and I just happened to have some buttermilk in my fridge since I baked a buttermilk chocolate cake last week and I`ve been wanting to use it up before it turns bad. The only thing I did differently was omitting the lavendar buds since I couldn`t find any but my batch of scones still turn out delicious! So if you love scones, I highly recommend that you try out this recipe!

3 cups all-purpose flour plus more for surface
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon dried lavender buds
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk
2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons sanding or granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups store-bought lemon curd
Ingredient Info:
Dried lavender buds (culinary lavender) are available at some supermarkets and natural foods stores.
Arrange racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 425°. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Whisk 3 cups flour and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Add butter; rub in with your fingers until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Whisk 1 cup buttermilk, zest, and vanilla in a small bowl. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Stir until shaggy dough forms.
Transfer to a lightly floured surface; knead until dough forms, about 5 turns. Pat into a 10x6" rectangle. Halve dough lengthwise. Cut each half crosswise into 4 squares. Cut each square diagonally in half into 2 triangles. Divide between baking sheets. Brush with 2 Tbsp. buttermilk. Sprinkle with sanding sugar.
Bake until scones are golden and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 1315 minutes. Transfer to wire racks; let cool.
Serve warm or at room temperature with lemon curd.
