Lemon-Lavender Scones

Makes 8 or 12 scones.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon lemon zest
2 teaspoons dried lavender flowers
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 oz. unsalted butter, very cold
3/4 cups buttermilk
Glaze:
2 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon honey

Combine the flour, baking powder, soda, salt, sugar, lemon zest and lavender.
Dice the cold butter. Cut into the dry mixture quickly so that the butter is pea sized.
Combine vanilla and buttermilk, add to dry ingredients; mix until just combined.
Turn out onto a floured surface and pat into a disk shape about 1" thick.
Cut into triangles and place onto a lightly greased baking sheet.
Bake at 400F. until lightly browned.

10-12 minutes for 12 scones
12-15 minutes for 8 scones

Heat the glaze and brush on top of each scone immediately after they come out of the oven.
