Coconut Scones with Coconut Glaze

Thank you Pastry Affair for this great recipe!

Yields 8 scones

Coconut Scones
1 cup (125 grams) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (60 grams) whole wheat flour
1/4 cup (56 grams) granulated sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup coconut oil (solid state, not liquid)
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
3/4 cup (175 ml) coconut milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the solid coconut oil with a pastry blender (or your fingers) until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Stir in the coconut flakes and coconut milk until the mixture comes together.
Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and form into a disk roughly 1-inch thick. Cut the dough into 8 pie shaped wedges and move to a baking sheet. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until the edges barely take on color. Allow scones to cool completely before glazing.

Coconut Glaze
1/2 cup (62 grams) powdered sugar
1 tablespoon coconut milk

In a small bowl, stir together the powdered sugar and coconut milk. Using a spoon, drizzle glaze over cooled scones. Allow a few minutes for the glaze to set before serving.

The glazed scones also freeze well in an air-tight container. Allow scones to come to room temperature before serving.
