Lemon Lavender Buttermilk Scones

Scones are so quintessentially British, aren’t they? So of course I had to serve some at Disney Dinners: Mary Poppins Returns! I already had four variations of this buttermilk scone here on The Rose Table but came up with a brand new one for this tea.  I chose lavender to represent Mary Poppins, who is…

Buttermilk Scones Four Ways
