  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt

Cream Cheese Glaze

  • 2 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 to 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

Instructions

Scones

  • Preheat oven to 425F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, coconut, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly. Mix in yogurt, eggs, cream, lime juice, and zest until a shaggy dough forms.
  • Turn dough onto a floured surface and gently knead several times until dough comes together. Pat dough into a 1-in thick round. Cut round into 8 wedges and place wedges on prepared baking sheets. Bake scones at 425F 13-15 minutes or until golden-brown. Remove from oven and cool on a wire cooling rack.

Cream Cheese Glaze

  • In  a medium bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar together until completely creamy. Add lime juice by the tablespoon until glaze is drizzling consistency. Drizzle glaze over cooled scones. Let set 5 minutes then enjoy!
