Lavender Scones with Breakfast in Paris | Stash Tea

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 °F.
  2. Spray an 8-inch round cake pan with baking spray or flour.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. We traced the outside of a spring-form pan and then cut a circle so the parchment paper fits perfectly.
  4. In the work bowl of a food processor, place flour, sugar, baking powder, tea, and salt; pulse until combined. Add cold butter and pulse until mixture starts to get crumbly.
  5. Transfer the dough to a large bowl and fold in raisins and 1 cup cream, stirring until combined.
  6. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly, just until dough comes together.
  7. Press dough into prepared cake pan. Then, using a sharp knife or bench scraper, cut into 12 wedges.
  8. Spray baking sheet with Pam before placing wedges on top.
  9. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and remaining 1 teaspoon cream.
  10. Brush tops of scones with egg wash and bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. (Make sure you check your scones at the 12-minute mark. If they are golden brown, they are done.)

For vanilla bean glaze

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together confectioners’ sugar and vanilla until smooth.
  2. Drizzle over warm scones.

For regular vanilla glaze

  1. In a small saucepan, bring sugar, ¼ cup water, and vanilla to a boil, quickly turn down heat to a simmer until it thickens slightly.
  2. Drizzle over warm scones.

Enjoy!
