Lime Biscuits Recipe

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 lime, zested
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  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.
