Your teatime guests will feel like royalty with these lavender chamomile scones! Drizzled with a lavender glaze, these scones are perfectly sweet and will make the perfect addition to your teatime.
I really love lavender. I mean really love. I have lavender lotions, soaps, body scrubs, essential oils, and even lavender tea! You name it, I probably have it in lavender. My favorite color is even lavender. So really it’s not surprising that I would make these lavender chamomile scones drizzled with lavender glaze.
This quickly became one of my favorite recipes! First of all, I can’t believe how easy they were to make. Even a beginner can make these simple yet delicious scones! Also, I think these scones are just darling. Decorated with lavender, these are just so pretty to look at. I can imagine these served at a beautiful afternoon teatime in the spring. I can picture friends gathered around a table outside in the cool air sipping tea and enjoying these lavender scones. Mmm..I wish I was there now.
Not too sweet and not too much lavender, these scones are just right. They are just so lovely and can be served at the fanciest of tea parties or can be enjoyed on a regular basis as an afternoon snack with a cup of hot tea. Get your water boiling and get your lavender ready!
