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.

  • Mix milk and lime juice together in a bowl.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden, 15 to 20 minutes.

Cook's Note:

These can be made a day ahead and warmed in a 375 degree F (190 degree C) oven for 5 to10 minutes.
