Lemon Coconut Scones

While in Maui, I was inspired to make these tropical scones.  If you love lemon, then these are for you.  I ended up making 5 batches of these scones while in paradise.

Lemon Coconut Scones

2 cups flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
2 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup coconut
Zest of one lemon (put 1/2 tsp. aside for glaze)
1/2 cup cold butter
2/3 cup milk

Combine the flour, cream of tartar, b. powder, sugar, salt, lemon zest and coconut.  Cut in the butter with a pastry knife (see my biscuit recipe for more tips).  Add the milk and toss until just barely combined.  Divide into two portions.  Pat into a circle 1 inch thick.  Cut into 6 wedges.  Place the scones individually on a baking sheet.  Bake at 400F for about 12 mins or until just golden brown on the edges.

Juice of one lemon
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
about 1 cup powdered sugar

While the scones are still warm dip the tops in the glaze and sprinkle with a little more coconut.
