1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1 Happy Egg Co egg

1 tsp. Frontier Co-op vanilla

Lavender Icing

1 cup Wholesome powdered sugar

2-3 Tbsp. Organic Valley heavy cream

Frontier Co-op Lavender buds


Step 1

Add heavy cream to a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Watch carefully so it doesn’t bubble over the sides.

Step 2

Add tea bags to saucepan, remove from heat, let steep for 15-20 minutes.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicone lined mat. Set aside.

Step 4

In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Step 5

Add your grated butter and using your hands, mix to incorporate.

Step 6

Make a well in the middle and add your cool Earl Grey infused heavy cream, followed by your egg, and vanilla, mix to incorporate. It should be a shaggy dough.

Step 7

Add flour mixture until just combined, remove from bowl and pat mixture into a 8 inch-ish circular shape.

Step 8

Spray a large knife or a dough cutter with non-stick spray. Cut dough like you would a pizza, into 8 triangles. Place on baking sheet, leaving 2 inches in between each.

Step 9

Bake for 10 minutes, rotate baking sheet.

Step 10

Return to oven for 5-6 minutes or until the bottom edges are starting to turn golden brown.

Step 11

Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before adding glaze.
