We are all about comfort food and celebrating the joy of lactose free dairy here at Green Valley. Because of this and the desire for breakfast food always, we decided to embark on the perfect scone recipe. Our idea of the perfect scone is one that is light and fluffy yet indulgent and also lactose free. These lemon lavender scones seemed to be the perfect fit for what we were in search for, and we think you will feel the same way, too! Whip these up for your next brunch party, family function, or even staff meeting.
