Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoonbaking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 drops Doterra Laveder oil (or any other brand of edible oil)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup cold, unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh Wish Farms blackberries
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

Sugar Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400F and line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Whisk all-purpose flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest and lavender together in a large bowl.
  • Grate butter with a cheese grater, and add to the flour mixture.
  • Use your hands to rub the butter and flour mixture together, until it resembles breadcrumbs or a course flour like almond flour.
  • Combine heavy cream and egg in a bowl, and whisk together.
  • Add to the flour and butter mixture, and use a knife to gently cut the batter to mix it together.
  • Gently use a spatula to fold in the blackberries until the dough is well combined, but be careful not to overmix the dough.
  • Turn the dough onto your silicone mat, and shape into a round, 8 inch disc. The dough should be around 1.5 inches thick.
  • Cut the dough into 8 equal sized triangles and gently pull them apart from each other so they don't touch.
  • Brush the triangles with a little bit of heavy cream or milk to help them crisp up.
  • Place in the oven for 20-25minutes. They should be starting to lightly brown on the top and cooked in the middle, but still soft. Set aside to cool.

Sugar Glaze

  • Sift the powdered sugar, and combine all the glaze ingredients in a bowl. Stir together until smooth. If the mixture is too runny, add a touch more powdered sugar. If it is too thick, add a little more milk.
  • Get a spoon, and drizzle the glaze over the cooled scones.
  • Serve and enjoy!
