Ingredients
  

Scones

  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup Sugar granulated
  • 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Lime Zest
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 2/3 cup Milk any type
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tsp Coconut Extract

Lime Glaze

  • 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Lime Juice

Instructions
 

Before you get started

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Zest and juice the lime.
  • Prepare a clean, floured surface.
  • Grate the butter with a cheese grater.

Scones

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, lime zest, and salt.
  • Stir in the butter.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and coconut extract.
  • Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  • Place the dough onto the floured surface and flatten it into a 7 inch circle.
  • Using a butter knife, cut the circle into 8 wedges.
  • Place scones onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes, or until they start to brown.

Lime Glaze

  • Whisk together the powdered sugar and 1 Tbsp lime juice.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the scones, and serve.

Notes

  • A 1/2 cup butter equals 8 Tablespoons or 1 stick.
  • Place the butter in the freezer for 10-15 minutes prior to use, so that it is very cold.
  • If you don't have a cheese grater, you can cut the butter into small pieces and cut it into the flour mixture with a pastry blender.
Enjoy!
