  • Then strain out lavender flowers and discard them.
  • In a separate bowl, combine eggs and Lavender cream until well blended.
  • Stir cream mixture into dry ingredients until they are moistened.
  • Divide the dough into two 8-inch rounds on a greased baking sheet.
  • Cut the dough with a sharp knife into 8 wedges. Brush the top with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400 F for 10 to 15 minutes or until the scones are a golden brown.
  • Over baking will result in dry scones.
  • Oven temperatures DO vary so remember to check your scones at least five minutes before your baking time is up.
