Lavender Scones


To say that we have been sleeping in this summer is a HUGE understatement.

I never thought this day would come.
My son Charlie has never been a great sleeper, and far too many mornings began before the sun was up.
I’m pretty sure I have been sleep-deprived for most of the last 12 years, and am simply making up for it this summer.
Since school has been out, he has slept past 9 every day.
Some days even past 10.
I know, I shouldn’t let him sleep the summer away, but seriously, he NEVER slept.
Because our mornings are beginning near afternoon, breakfast has been sketchy at best.
We have had far too many cereal days.
Tomorrow will be different.
I planned ahead.
Tomorrow we will have scones, and not just ordinary scones, lavender scones.
It seems that I WAY over-bought lavender at  Farmer’s Market on Sunday 
   ~you know how I hate to waste

These scones are sweet with just a hint of lavender.
I am really looking forward to breakfast tomorrow.
Lavender Scones:
  ~adapted from Bon Appetite

3 cups of flour
1 tsp of lavender buds
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 sticks of butter (cold) cut into small pieces
1 cup of buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
combine all of the dry ingredients
using a pastry cutter or fork, cut in the butter
you will have small pebbles
add in the vanilla and buttermilk
mix just until combined
on a lightly floured surface, pat the dough into a circle
(mine was pretty thick)
cut into 8 wedges
brush with a little buttermilk and sprinkle with raw sugar
bake on a prepared sheet (parchment or buttered)
@425 for 13 – 15 minutes

    They look yummy Heather! I love scones! I say let him sleep..that is what summer vacay is for! I let my kids sleep as long as they like in summer. Teenagers have mixed up internal clocks, so my daughter would sleep past noon if I let her but I get her up at noon if she’s not up then. My 11 yr. sleeps until 10. Considering all the winter mornings that he has to get at 6 am for hockey….I’m okay with that! Have a great week! Angie xo

    Wow I had no idea you could bake with lavender! So cool.
    Also, you’ve given me hope that maybe ONE DAY (in like ten more years) I will be able to sleep in!!! :) Totally take advantage of it!
    thanks so much for linking up at mercyINK again!

    With haνin so much content do you ever run into аny problemѕ of plagогism οr сορугight
    infringement? My site haѕ a lot of completely unіquе content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely
    аppreciate it.
