Coconut and Lime Scones



I have a coconut and lime cake that I make and I have posted here. So I thought why not coconut and lime scones?

A wonderful summer treat that tastes great.

Would be wonderful at your Easter breakfast buffet.

  4. Mix 2 cups powdered sugar with two tablespoons water along with 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract. place the icing in a bowl and dip the top of the scones in the icing and allow the remaining icing to drip off before turning them right side up. If the icing is not thick enough add additional powdered sugar.
