Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scones

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scones made with Joseph's Grainery Barley Flour
Yes, these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scones are as good as they sound.  I keep calling them cookies and asking MaMa if I can have another cookie, but she's informed me now that the proper culinary term is "scone".  If you're looking for a yummy whole grain breakfast treat, then this is a great bet.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scones
by Joseph's Grainery

You won't be able to stay away from these!
  • 2 c Joseph's Grainery Barley Flour
  • 1/2 c unsalted butter, cold, cut into small pieces
  • 1 Tbs creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 c brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 3/4 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbs milk (for brushing)
Ingredients for Peanut Butter Icing:
  • 3/4 c powdered sugar, sifted
  • 2 Tbs milk
  • 2 Tbs creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt.
  • Cut in the butter and peanut butter using a pastry blender, until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand. Make a well in the center and add the buttermilk, egg and vanilla. Stir to combine, do not over mix.
  • Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and knead a few times. Pat the dough into an 8 inch circle and cut into 8 wedges. Transfer the wedges to the prepared baking sheet, making sure to space the wedges about 2 inches apart. Brush each wedge with milk and then bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  • Once the scones are done, remove from the oven and prepare the glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients until completely smooth. Once the scones have cooled, drizzle the glaze over them. Let them continue to cool and the icing to harden.

I had a hard time keeping my hands off of them while they were cooling...
They were just too tempting!  You can't tell that I knew I wasn't supposed to be touching them, can you?
