Coconut Cream Scones with Lime Glaze

Coconut Cream Scones



  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut, toasted
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups full fat coconut milk
  • 1/8 tsp pure coconut extract


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1 1/2 tsp lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp full fat coconut milk
  • 23 drops pure coconut extract
  • 3 Tbsp toasted coconut chips


  1. Line two rimmed baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Place sugar, toasted coconut, and lime zest in a food processor and pulse for 1 minute. Whisk together coconut-sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Combine coconut milk and coconut extract; drizzle over flour mixture and fold in just until flour is incorporated and a shaggy dough forms.
  2. Divide dough in half and turn out on a lightly floured board. Use lightly floured hands to pat each half into a 6-inch circle. Place the two circles of dough on prepared baking sheets and cut each circle into 6 wedges; pull the wedges slightly apart, leaving an inch between them. Chill baking sheets in the freezer for 20 minutes while preheating oven to 425°F.
  3. Bake for 16 minutes, rotating baking sheets halfway through, until tops are set, edges are beginning to turn golden, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool scones for 5 minutes on baking sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool. For the glaze, whisk together powdered sugar, salt, lime zest, lime juice, coconut milk, and coconut extract in a small bowl. Drizzle glaze over scones and sprinkle with toasted coconut chips.


Make ahead: Cut each circle of dough into wedges on baking sheet; cover and freeze overnight. Brush with coconut milk and bake directly from the freezer, adding 1-2 minutes to baking time. For longer storage, transfer frozen scones to a freezer bag until ready to use.
