Lavender Vanilla Bean Scones

Author Notes

I absolutely love the petite vanilla bean scones from starbucks so I had to figure out a way to re-create them. I love working with culinary lavender and I know that vanilla bean and lavender complement each other perfectly. So, I put them into a scone, and bada-bing, instant breakfast comfort food. These scones are also gluten-free so celiacs can enjoy! —misschels
