Lime, Cream Cheese Scone...So Tender and Airy!

 Young Living Lime Essential Oil is fast becoming one of my favorite oils! Distilled from the zest not juice, it is pungent yet sweet, perfect for a soft, airy scone!
2 cups flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
3 tablespoons cold cream cheese cut into small pieces
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 drops Young Living Lime Essential Oil
1/2 cup heavy cream or milk
1 cup powdered sugar
4-6 drops Young Living Lime Essential Oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
milk or cream
dash salt
If you have made most of the scones on this blog you will recognize that this recipe just replaces some of the butter with cream cheese and adds lime oil, the process will be the same.
Preheat the oven to 375F.
Lightly grease or spray a sheet pan.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
Cut the butter and cream cheese into the dry ingredients.

Mix the cream or milk, egg, vanilla, and lime oil in a measuring cup or small bowl.

Add to the dry ingredients, folding gently until combined. Add more milk if too dry and won't hold together.
Lightly "dust" counter with flour, knead dough a few times to form ball then pat into disc about 1 inch thick. Cut into desired number of pieces. For this one I wanted smaller pieces so I divided dough into two pieces to make two scones.

Transfer to sheet pan, bake for 9-11 minutes or until the bottom edges show the slightest hint of golden brown.
Remove to cooling rack.

While cooling make icing. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and beat well, add the cream or milk sparingly until you get the right consistency.
 The lime oil is such a rich green.
 When completely cool, arrange on a pretty plate...or not. Glaze, and eat (my favorite part).
