The Kitchen Vignette food blog's lilac scone recipe provides a detailed albeit easy to replicate account of a savory summertime pastry. And while many have produced the classic scone mixture of butter, sugar and white flour, few have opted for this botanical take on cooking.
These delectable lilac scones were inspired by the Remedial Eating website that boasted the simplicity of the classic scone: "Plain, simple scones...These scones have no whole grains, no ground oats, no spelt." Kitchen Vignette countered this authentic method of dessert creation with a botanical twist, adding in a full cup of lilac blossoms. In addition to being an edible flower, they are also aromatic, merging taste with a scented approach to cuisine.
