These rich lavender scones are perfect for a summer picnic or afternoon tea party. Using lavender oil makes it much easier to control the lavender flavor without getting a soapy flavor.
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for rolling out
¼ cup granulated sugar, plus extra for sprinkling on top of scones
2 ¼ teaspoons instant yeast
1 large punch fine grain sea salt
½ cup butter, cut into small cubes and chilled
6 tablespoons milk, plus extra for brushing on the tops of the scones*
1 drop DoTERRA Lavender Essential Oil
– Preheat the oven to 425° Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Whisk the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, instant yeast, and salt together in a mixing bowl.
– Add the butter to the bowl. Using a pastry cutter or two forks, cut the butter into the mixture until it resembles a coarse meal (pea-sized bits with a few larger bits of fat is OK). A pastry cutter makes this step quick and easy.
– In another bowl, stir the lavender oil into the milk. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and slowly pour in the milk mixture.
– Mix with a spatula to form a dough. Sprinkle flour over a smooth work surface. Turn the dough out onto the work surface. Work the dough quickly so it comes together.
– Flatten the dough into a square that is about 1-inch thick. Cut the dough into 9 squares, then move them to the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops of the scones with a bit of milk and sprinkle them with granulated sugar. Put them in the preheated oven for 16-17 minutes, or until the edges have turned golden brown in color
