I have been finger-crossing, magic lamp rubbing, penny throwing and wishing upon some stars that Brian makes me a breakfast-in-bed for Mother’s Day. It’s something I wouldn’t have always enjoyed since I’m usually an “up and at ’em” kind of gal, but this adorable rambunctious toddler phase of Bennett’s has got me thinking that a little breakfast and Netflix in bed might be just what this mama needs to enjoy a little Mother’s Day serenity.
This post is an update of an older recipe. A kind of scone makeover, if you will. I previously posted a recipe for Orange Scones with a Sweet and Tangy Orange Glaze, but I was having fun thinking of ways I can infuse lavender into my cooking and replaced the Orange Glaze with a Lavender Glaze and OH-MY-WORD; it was so amazing, and it officially replaced the Orange Glaze in my go-to scone recipe!
The blend of the orange and lavender flavors in these scones is absolute heaven! I always have lavender buds on hand from our annual trip to Lavender By The Bay on the North Fork of Long Island, but you can find them online or at a specialty food store.
These scones are sure to impress at a family breakfast or brunch party, but they do look pretty good just on a breakfast tray atop my bed, don’t they? Your day will be amazing after starting it off with this delicious pastry!
