Step 1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together.

Scatter the butter over the mixture and cut in with a pastry cutter until
mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.

Mix in the white chocolate, lime zest, lime juice and heavy cream.

Turn the dough out onto a floured counter and knead until it forms a rough, slightly sticky ball.

Divide the dough into two balls.

Flatten each dough ball until it is approximately an 8 inch circle.

Using a sharp knife cut each circle first into halves, then fourths and finally eighths.

Place the pieces onto a well greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.

Drizzle the icing onto hot scones and garnish with lime zest and sugar if desired.
