Lavender White Chocolate Scones

Lavender White Chocolate Scones      

Prep Time:  15 min
Cook Time:  10-12 min
Level:  Easy
Serves:  10 reg/20mini servings

• 2 cups unbleached flour
• 1/3 cup granulated sugar
• 2 t baking powder
• ½ sea salt
• ¼ t baking soda
• 1/3 c cold butter
• ½ teaspoon dried culinary lavender, chopped
• 1 (4-ounce) bar white baking chocolate, such as Ghirardelli™, chopped
• 1 cup cold heavy whipping cream
• ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine flour, ⅓ cup sugar, baking powder, lavender, and salt, whisking well. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add chocolate, stirring until combined.

In a small bowl, combine cream and vanilla extract, stirring to blend. Add to flour mixture, stirring until mixture is evenly moist. (If dough seems dry, add more cream, 1 tablespoon at a time.) Working gently, bring mixture together with hands until a dough forms.

Press into an 8 inch circle and cut into 10 wedges for regular sized scones, or press into two 4 inch circles and cut each into 10 mini wedges for 20 mini scones.  

Bake in a preheated 400° oven 12-15 min. for regular scones (or until lightly browned), 9-11 min for mini scones. If you like them sweeter, you can drizzle a powdered sugar glaze over when cooled.
