It's been way too long since I have posted about scones. I think I may lose my "Scone Queen" title because of this. ;)
I came up with this scone recipe over the weekend because I had WAY too many limes that needed to be used and Anya had been asking to make Daddy something with white chocolate since that is his favorite. So... White Chocolate and Lime Scones were born.
Let me tell you, these were awesome! And I'm not just tooting my own horn. I really enjoyed these a lot. There is a subtle coconut flavor from the coconut extract, but if you aren't a coconut fan, you could substitute vanilla extract.
White Chocolate and Lime Scones
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp lime zest
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, chilled
1/2 cup milk
1 large egg
1 teaspoons coconut extract
1/2 - 1 cup white chocolate chunks or chips
Rub lime zest and sugar together. Mix in flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly.
In seperate bowl, mix together milk, egg, and coconut extract. Add to flour mixture and combine. Stir in white chocolate.
Pat dough into circle and cut into 8 triangles. Alternately, you could drop the scones directly onto baking sheet.
Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.
