Spring Delight: Lavender Scones Perfect for Your Easter Tea Party

Spring Delight: Lavender Scones Perfect for Your Easter Tea Party - Beach House Teas

Welcome to the essence of spring! With Easter around the corner, it's the perfect time to start planning your celebratory tea party. While traditional fare is always welcomed, this year, we suggest adding a unique twist with our lavender scones. These scones aren't just treats; they are a sensory experience that will leave your guests enchanted and asking for the recipe.


Why Lavender?

Lavender is known for its soothing aroma and has been celebrated for centuries in various cultures for its healing and calming properties. When infused into baked goods, it provides a subtle, intriguing flavor that pairs wonderfully with the richness of a classic scone. Plus, its beautiful hue adds a springtime vibe to your table setting.


Lavender Scones Recipe


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
  • 1 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing
  • 1 tablespoon dried culinary lavender
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Zest of 1 lemon



  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried culinary lavender (optional)



  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the chilled, cubed butter and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to blend the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

  3. In a small bowl, steep the dried lavender in the heavy cream for about 15 minutes. Strain out the lavender, then whisk an egg, vanilla extract, and lemon zest into the infused cream.

  4. Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Gently fold everything together until just combined. Do not overmix.

  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and shape it into a round disk about 1 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter or a glass to cut out the scones and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

  6. Brush the tops of the scones with a little heavy cream for a golden finish.

  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the scones are golden and well-risen.

  8. While the scones are baking, prepare the glaze by whisking together powdered sugar and lemon juice until smooth. If desired, add dried lavender for an extra touch of flavor.

  9. Once the scones are done, let them cool slightly before drizzling them with the glaze.


Serving Suggestions:

Serve your lavender scones warm with a dollop of clotted cream and your favorite jam. Pair with a pot of freshly brewed tea, ideally a floral blend to complement the lavender, and enjoy the burst of spring flavors.

These lavender scones are sure to be a hit at your Easter tea party, offering a perfect blend of tradition and whimsy. So don your Easter bonnet, set the table with your finest china, and get ready to impress your guests with these delightful treats. Happy Easter and happy baking!
