Healthy Mother’s Day Recipe: Lavender Lemon Blackberry Scones
Lavender Lemon Blackberry Scones

Makes 12-16 scones

3 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon dried culinary lavender
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cold and cubed
3/4 cup cold buttermilk, plus 2 tablespoons
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
1 cup fresh blackberries (or berry of your choice)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons granulated sugar for sprinkling


1. Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. Position your oven racks to the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, 1/3 cup granulated sugar, baking powder, lavender, salt, and baking soda. Cut in chilled butter (using a pastry blender or two knives), until it resembles oat-sized crumbles.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup buttermilk, egg, lemon zest, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture, and stir with a wooden spoon until a soft dough forms. Fold in blackberries.

4. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Knead dough until a compact dough forms. Pat the dough into 1” thick rectangle. With a sharp knife, cut the dough in half lengthwise, and then cut each half into four squares. Cut each square on a diagonal to form two triangles. Transfer the scones to baking sheets. Lightly brush with remaining buttermilk, and sprinkle the tops with the remaining sugar.

5. Bake for about 15-18 minutes, until the tops are golden brown. Transfer scones to a wire rack to cool slightly. Enjoyed warm, or served at room temperature.
