But what to do with all these beautifully smelling buddies?
One use that isn't widely known is in the kitchen.
Here is a yumm recipe for chocolate scones with lavender.

- 1 large egg
- 2 Tbsp. milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 1/2 cups white flour
- 3/4 tsp. baking powder
- 1 generous cup good chocolate chips
Bowl 1: Blend butter, sugar & Lavender until smooth. Add egg, milk & vanilla in next.
Bowl 2: Blend oatmeal, flour, and baking powder together; add in your chocolate chips to this dry mix.

Bake 10 minutes for soft cookies, 15 mins for crisp ones in a preheated oven at 350F.
