Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lavender flowers
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • powdered sugar, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, orange zest and lavender flowers. Pulse to mix. Add butter; pulse briefly to break up butter. Add egg, buttermilk and vanilla. Pulse until everything is just wet.
  3. Remove mixture to a floured surface. Knead until mixture just comes together. Don’t overwork the dough. Divide the dough in half, and pat each portion into a ¾-inch-thick round. Cut each round into six wedges or squares, and place the pieces 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet or a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm or at room temperature.
