1/2 cup buttermilk
1 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.
