White Chocolate Coconut Scones

Our guests absolutely rave over these scones!

3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups milk
2 tablespoons sugar

Glaze (optional)
2 drops of coconut extract
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 Tablespoon milk

Sift together 3 cups all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Cut 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter into bits and, with your fingertips, mix into flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Using a large spoon, stir in 1 cup coconut and 1/2 cup white chocolate chips and 1 and 1/4 cups milk and 2 tablespoons sugar until combined. Transfer to a lightly floured surface and, with floured hands, knead it until it forms a dough. Roll out dough into a 9” round (about 1/2 inch thick) and cut out scones with a 2 1/2 inch round cutter. Arrange scones 1 inch apart on a buttered large baking sheet and gently re-roll and cut out scraps. Bake scones in middle of a 350 degrees F oven until pale golden, about 15 minutes, and transfer to a rack to cool.
