Author Notes

I absolutely fell in love with the petite vanilla scones at starbucks and because I am a natural vanilla bean addict, I thought I must make my own version of the scones. I also love using culinary lavender, which just so happens to complement vanilla beans perfectly. So, bada-bing! The lavender vanilla bean scone was born. Oh, and they are gluten-free so celiacs can enjoy! —misschels
