Coconut Lime Drop Biscuits

Coconut Lime Biscuits

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • the juice of 1/2 a lime
  • the zest of 1/2 a lime

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Add all the dry ingredients to a bowl: the flour, baking powder, salt, and zest.  Whisk briefly to combine.  Work into the flour mixture the butter and coconut oil with a fork or your fingers until only small pieces of fat remain.

Add the lime juice to the milk and stir.  Make a well in the flour/butter and add the milk.  Mix just until combined but no more.  The dough will be sticky and may not even pick up all the dry ingredients.  That's OK, you want to work the dough as little as possible.

Using two spoons, scoop with one and pack with the other.  Scrape the drops out onto a sheet pan and bake until GBnD (Golden Brown and Delicious) - about 15-20 minutes.

Makes about 15 biscuits
