I'm now 32 years old and I've never tasted/baked scones. But 2 weeks ago I made a recipe and loved it. So now I'm in search of great looking recipes for scones. And this one seems to be delish and also I love coconut. From the blog Heather's Dish

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.
  2. In a food processor pulse together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add in the butter and pulse a few times until the mixture is crumbly. Add the shredded coconut and pulse 2-3 times, just to mix.
  3. Pour into a large bowl and add the coconut milk; using a spoon mix together until the dry ingredients are incorporated.
  4. Press into a 9-inch circle and cut into eighths. Place on baking sheet and bake 12-15 minutes or until the bottoms are just slightly browned. Serve hot with a simple glaze of powdered sugar and milk, with a pat of butter, or just plain!

I really enjoyed these lovely scones, they were light, tender, flaky and delicious. Just perfect served warm with a little butter and just as great toasted with a little more butter and homemade raspberry jam. I made them as written, but I did use flaked coconut. My batter was a little sticky so I added a little extra flour to shape it, just before baking. Thank you for sharing this winner with all of us Boomie. I can't wait to try these with stewed strawberries and cream. Updated: I made strawberry shortcake with your scones, split them, added stewed strawberries and vanilla ice cream, for an amazing dessert. Thanks again for sharing this versatile treat.

I had high hopes for these scones as I love coconut. Sadly the coconut flavor was too light and the texture a little heavy. I think using regular flake coconut and part coconut flour could help boost the flavor. I'm not sure why they were heavy - maybe from the coconut milk ??? or a little too much flour though it seems like the right proportions, and I was very careful not to over handle the dough. I think I would try them again with a little less flour to see if that would help . Made for PRMRT
