White Chocolate Lavender Scones

These are DELICIOUS! They may sound  a little weird, but once you try one, you won't be able to stop! You'll have to have at least one more. This recipe is from a friend of a friend. I would link this to her blog, but it's private, so just know, this wasn't my recipe, but I use it often now!

White Chocolate Lavender Scones
3 1/2 c flour
2 T baking powder
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c unsalted butter
2 T food grade lavender
1 to 2 oz white chocolate, chopped into small pieces (or use chips)
2 t vanilla
1 to 1 1/4 c half and half or table cream

Preheat oven to 400F.
Combine the flour, sugar, and baking powder. Add butter by grating it directly into the flour mixture. Add the lavender & white chocolate; stir to incorporate. Add cream and vanilla. Start with 1 cup cream and 2 teaspoons of vanilla. Incorporate into flour mixture. Add more cream if needed or until you have dough that holds together. Do not over work the dough. Roll out dough to about 3/4 to 1- inch thickness. Using a knife cut dough into equal triangles. You can also use cookie cutters if desired. Place on baking sheet or stone and allow to stand for 20 minutes.
Sprinkle the tops with sugar. Bake for 12 minutes or until slightly golden on the top.


  1. oh my! That does sound so weird..... kinda like chocolate and bacon, but that ended up being yummy!

  2. These are SO delicious, and the recipe came out perfectly. Thank you!

  3. My lavender must be much stronger than yours. I would make these again but with 1 Tablespoon lavender and increase the white chocolate to 4-5 oz.

  4. I made these several years ago and my husband still remembers them. He's asked for them for his birthday this weekend. Would they be as good if made a day or two ahead and kept in an airtight container?
