1/2 cup buttermilk1 whole egg 1 tablespoon granulated sugar 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1/4 cup unsalted butter (very cold and cubed) 1/2 teaspoon dried lavender buds, minced

Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together. Using forks cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients until it has the consistency of coarse corn meal.

In a separate bowl, whisk the buttermilk and eggs together and then add to the dry ingredients. Press the mixture into a 1-inch high round. Be careful not to knead or over-work the dough.

Cut the dough into 12 wedges and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes until lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature.
