Lavender Scones

Our lavender scones samples have been a big hit at the last two events, Fall Chick Event and SheKCLifestyle in Overland Park, Kansas. We love serving our community and sharing all the benefits of lavender with you. What better way to introduce you to our wonderful herbal teas and culinary lavender then to sample a lavender scone. We think these paired wonderfully and was a great way for you to try out cooking in your kitchen this holiday season. We promised each of you we would post the recipe so here it is. Enjoy!
