"I whipped these up one night to go with our Mexican chicken stew, but they would be equally yummy for a fun twist on strawberry shortcake! The lime flavor is refreshing but not overpowering."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Mix milk and lime juice together in a bowl.
  3. Whisk flour, baking powder, lime zest, salt, and baking soda together in a separate bowl; mix butter into flour mixture using two knives or a pastry blender until crumbly. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until just moistened.
  4. Transfer dough to a lightly floured work surface; knead a few times. Gently shape dough into a 3/4-inch thick disk; cut into 12 biscuits using a 2 1/2-inch floured cutter or the rim of a small juice glass. Reshape scraps as needed. Arrange biscuits on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden, 15 to 20 minutes.

I used salted butter - my only changr. Quite good. Nice light lime taste. Biscuit itself was flaky and delish. Will make again

Because I changed the recipe to spelt flour, soy milk and vegetable oil, I needed to add some extra flour. These turned into drop biscuits instead of the kind that needed to be rolled out. DH ...

Interesting twist adding the lime. Will definitely make again.
