Author Notes

I fell in love with the petite vanilla bean scones at Starbucks and I absolutely love the scent of lavender. So, I thought...why not put the two together? These scones are absolutely delicious, substly sweet, with the fragrant scent of lavender, along with the perfect balance of vanilla bean. —misschels
