For the Scones


  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/ 2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2/ 3 cup oat milk
  • 1 lemon, zested (1 tablespoon) and juiced (2 tablespoons)
  • 1 teaspoon culinary lavender, finely chopped
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

For the Glaze


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 lemon, zested ( 1 tablespoon) and juiced (2 tablespoons)


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400ºF.

  • Step 2

    Stir together first four ingredients. Then cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry cutter or your fingers until it resembles the size of peas. Add milk, lemon, and lavender and stir until it forms a soft dough.

  • Step 3

    Turn dough onto floured surface and form into a disc. Cut into wedges and separate so they have room to bake on a greased cookie sheet. Brush tops with a whipped egg for that extra glisten!

  • Step 4

    Bake for 18 minutes.

  • Step 5

    While baking, make a lemon glaze. Drizzle on lemon glaze with a spoon, and serve on pretty vintage plates with a cup of tea!
