Lavender and citrus burst in flavor for this fun inspiring recipe.
After buying a bag or oranges and contemplating how to use them, we decided to blend into our lavender scone mix, we came up with this delightful treat. So many enjoy lemon and lavender together and we think that lavender with any citrus brightens the day.
Lavender Citrus Scones with Lavender Orange Glaze
1 package Norwood Lavender Farm Lavender Scone Mix
1/2 cup orange juice
1/3 cup butter
zest from one orange
In a medium sized baking bowl combine lavender scone mix, and butter, using a pastry cutter, cut in butter until combined, add egg, orange juice and orange zest. Stir until mixed together. Add dough onto a greased baking sheet shaping into a 8 inch circle, or roll dough using a little extra flour so dough doesn't stick to rolling pin or hands. Cut out 8 circles and lay on prepared cookie sheet.
Bake at preheated 425℉ oven for 13-15 minutes or until top is slightly golden.
Lavender Orange Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp orange juice
1/2 tsp lavender extract
1/2 tsp grated orange peel
In a small mixing bowl combine powdered sugar, orange juice, lavender extract and grated orange peel. Stir until smooth, it should be the consistency of heavy syrup.
When scones are golden and still warm from the oven drizzle a teaspoon of glaze over the the top of scones, garnish with a few culinary lavender flower buds and fresh orange zest.
