Use fresh or dried lavender from your garden to bake these teatime treats


“These scones freeze well and toast up beautifully,” says Litti Birker of The Bohemian Café & Catering Co.

Makes about 20

Ingredients

  • 1⁄3 cup (75 mL) granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp. (30 mL) + 1 tsp. (5 mL) baking powder
  • 41⁄2 cups (1 L + 125 mL) bread (high gluten) or all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (250 mL) margarine or butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 21⁄3 cups (575 mL) milk
  • 1⁄2 tbsp. (7 mL) fresh or dried lavender buds

Preparation
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

Mix first three ingredients in a bowl; cut in margarine or butter.

Whisk eggs in a separate bowl; add milk.

Stir lavender buds into dry mix.

Gently fold milk mixture into dry mix; dough should be just moistened and slightly crumbly. Do not over mix.

Using a 1⁄3 cup (75 mL) measure, scoop out dough and pat into desired shape, 11⁄2 inches (3 cm) thick. Arrange on parchment-lined or lightly greased baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
