White Chocolate Lime Scones- soft, tender, and packed with flavor, they are sure to become a favorite!

Around here, January is almost always bitter cold. This one has sure started out that way. When it’s freezing cold outside, I tend to do more baking. So a lot of baking got done around here over Christmas break. Nothing warms the house, and the tummy, quite like home baked bread, muffins, scones, and other goodies!


Whip up a batch of these White Chocolate Lime Scones. You are sure to love them!

These White Chocolate Lime Scones are easy to make, and packed with flavor!I came up with this lime scone recipe because I found some limes in the fridge that I needed to use up. I love the combination of the tart lime with the sweetness of the white chocolate. And there is something about citrus that just makes me feel like the sun is shining, even if it isn’t. That’s probably one of the reasons I love lime so much! 😉

White Chocolate Lime Scones
Tender scones with white chocolate chips and a hint of lime, drizzled with more white chocolate.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 5 Tbsp cold butter
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1-2 tsp lime zest
  • Milk for tops
  • 2 Tbsp white chocolate chips for drizzle (optional)


Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Cut in butter till coarse crumbs form. Stir in chocolate chips. Add milk and lime zest and mix just till moistened. Pat or roll into a circle about 1" thick. Cut into eight wedges and place on lightly greased or silpat lined cookie sheets. Brush with milk. Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes. If desired, drizzle with melted white chocolate.


-If you prefer, you can sprinkle the scones with sugar after you brush them with milk. I opted not to because I knew I would be drizzling them with white chocolate.

  1. Kara, adding a little milk was all that I needed to do. They were a huge hit!

  2. I followed the instructions but my batter is dry so adding a bit more milk so it will “dough” up. What could I have done wrong since no one else seemed to have this problem 🙁

    • It could just be that your flour was packed, sometimes it settles in the container. It’s fine if you have to add a bit more milk. As long as they taste good, that’s all that matters. 🙂

  3. These are some of my family’s favourite scones. The last time I made them I forgot to reserve any chocolate chips for the glaze, so I just mixed some icing sugar with lime juice (and a little milk for consistency) for the drizzle – it was fabulous! Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!
