In large bowl combine first 6 ingredients

Using a fork or pastry cutter, cut cold butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles fine crumbs

Combine lime juice and milk

Pour into flour mixture and stir just until blended (dough will be soft)

*As with all “biscuit” type dough, the more you mix…the tougher the end product will be.  DON’T over mix*

Turn dough onto a well floured surface and knead gently 6 times

*Make sure your hands are floured good and don’t over-knead.  Dough will be sticky*

Shape dough into a ball, then flatten into an 8″ circle

Cut into 8 wedges

Spray scone pan (or baking sheet works fine) with cooking spray

Place wedges (1″ apart if using baking sheet) in scone pan 

*Dough will still be sticky so don’t worry if it doesn’t look smooth*
