Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Scones – soft, tender, and delicious, these scones will please chocolate peanut butter lovers of all ages!
If you’ve been visiting my site for very long, you know that I am a big fan of chocolate and peanut butter. I am also pretty much in love with scones. It was only a matter of time before I combined the two into one spectacular recipe. And yes, these scones are spectacular!
I was wishing I made a double batch, because my family devoured every crumb of these tasty scones!
Scones are simple to make, just be sure you don’t overwork the dough. For these scones, you cut the peanut butter in with the butter. I use this pastry cutter, and it works like a charm.
I used creamy peanut butter because that’s what I had on hand, but crunchy will work fine. The glaze won’t be as smooth (obviously), but you will have a yummy crunch.
Mini chocolate chips work perfectly for this recipe. They spread evenly throughout the whole scone, making sure you get plenty of chocolate in every bite. And of course I’m all about having plenty of chocolate!
Every bite of these peanut butter scones is heavenly. I’m drooling just thinking about them!
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 Tbsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup cold butter
- 1/3 cup peanut butter (I used chunky)
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 2 Tbsp milk
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips (or 1 cup regular)
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 2 Tbsp peanut butter
- 3-4 tsp milk
- Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Cut in the butter and peanut butter. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, sour cream, milk, and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients with the chocolate chips and stir gently till barely combined. Pat the dough together in the bowl, then dump out onto a floured counter.
- Pat the dough into an 8" circle. Cut into 8 wedges, and place 1" apart on silpat lined or lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 400° for about 12 minutes or till golden brown.
- For glaze: Whisk together ingredients and add enough milk to make a thin icing. Place in a ziplock bag and snip the corner. Squeeze the glaze on top of the warm scones.
