I saw this recipe in the May 2007 issue of Sunset Magazine and just had to post it! After suggestions from Mikekey and Alskann I have halved the amount of lemon zest and doubled the amount of lavender. Thanks for the help.

Yum! I served these with homemade lemon curd, I loved the lavender flavor in these scones. They were a little dry, but they were still very good. I did'nt strain the lavender I just kept it in and they looked really pretty. Thanks for the great recipe!
