Strawberry Lime Scones
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • For the scones:
  • 2 cups flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 6 Tbsp cold butter, small dice
  • 1 cup finely diced strawberries
  • zest of 3 limes
  • 1-2 Tbsp melted butter
  • For the glaze:
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 3-4 Tbsp powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt to a food processor fit with the dough blade.
  3. Add in the cold butter and continue to mix until the butter becomes incorporated and the pieces are about the size of peas.
  4. Add the dry mixture to a bowl. Stir in the strawberries and lime zest.
  5. In a measuring cup mix together the buttermilk and egg. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until the dry ingredients are mostly incorporated.You do not want to overwork the dough.
  6. Pour the dough out onto a very lightly floured surface {too much flour will leave you with a heavy dense scone}. Gently press together to form into a square or rectangle about 1 inch high.
  7. Cut into 6-8 even squares or rectangles. Place onto a lined baking sheet and brush with the melted butter.
  8. Bake for approx 22-24 minutes or until lightly golden.
  9. While baking, make the glaze by simply stirring together the lime juice and powdered sugar.
  10. Once you remove the scones from the oven, brush all the glaze onto the scones. The hot scones will absorb the glaze.
