You probably noticed how much I LOVE key lime recipes. I patiently wait every year for the key limes to arrive at the supermarket. This year I waited for too long. It has been a pretty bad year for key lime crops in Mexico, so key limes have been in short supply and much more expensive. I probably ran to the store every other day, for three weeks trying to get some. I finally got some and made these delicious scones.

I originally planned on making a cake roll (and I still plan to) but after gathering all my ingredients, they suddenly called for scones. You know that you supposed to listen to your ingredients and they will tell you what they want to be. NO, not literally…that would be crazy. I don’t hear ingredients talk to me and if you do, well you should probably get that checked. (Hehe.)

These strawberries and key limes were right! They were perfect as scones

Strawberry Key Lime Scones & Collection of 50 Key Lime Recipes
 
Serves: 8-10 scones
Ingredients
  • 3½ cups of flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup cold unsalted butter, chopped
  • ⅔ cup of sugar
  • 2 cold eggs
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1½ cup diced strawberries
  • Zest from 2 key limes
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Eggwash: 1 egg white + 1 tsp water
  • Sugar for sprinkling (preferable vanilla sugar)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Grease it lightly.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into the bowl of an electric mixer.
  3. Dice strawberries and set aside. Zest key limes and set aside.
  4. Chop cold butter into small slices and add to dry ingredients. Mix dry ingredients and butter until it looks like coarse crumbs.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, vanilla, sugar and buttermilk together. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture while mixing on low speed.
  6. Add diced strawberries and key lime zest. Still on low speed, mix until just combined.
  7. Take dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough a few times (10-15 seconds), until smooth.
  8. Pat the dough into a circle that is about 1½ inches thick in the center but thinner on the outer edge. Cut the circle like a pie, into 8 pieces.
  9. Transfer the slices of dough onto a baking sheet.
  10. Whisk egg white and water and brush the scones with the egg-wash.
  11. Sprinkle with sugar.
  12. Bake for about 18-22 minutes. Break one scone to make sure that it's done but still nice and soft in the middle.

  1. The link to the 50 key lime recipes isn’t working.

  2. I love the taste of lime. In fact we had a huge lemon and lime tree that we raised from a little 12 inch plant. Anyway we have to bring our plants in for the winter — our trees didn’t make it this year. We would have fresh lemons and limes at the end of summer. It was great!! I haven’t tried scones — I’ll have to try my hand at it. Your recipe looks great.

  3. I share your love for key lime anything! Thank you for your collection of key lime recipes. I will begin today with your scone recipe….yummy
