Peanut Butter & Jelly Scones

 I think the kids were the most excited about this one! The peanut butter dough was awesome- like eating a big peanut butter cookie. Definitely going to have to experiment with this one!!

Peanut Butter & Jelly Scones

  • Ingredients:
  • 2 cup unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup organic sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Crumble the remaining dough over
    the jelly
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 egg
1/4 cup jelly
The easiest way to do this is in a food processor*. 
Put dry ingredients in food processor, whir slightly to mix. Cut butter into chunks and put in the food processor and whir until mixed and crumbly.
Beat egg, sour cream and peanut butter slightly and pour into food processor, whir until dough forms a ball.
Place about 1/2 of the dough on greased (or parchment paper) baking sheet and press into a circle, about 8 inches. Spread the jelly on and then crumble the rest of the dough over the top. Press down. With a sharp knife, cut into 8 pieces (pie/triangles). Bake 15-20** minutes at 400˚.
Press the dough down

*If you do not have a food processor, you can do this by hand. Cut the butter into chunks, add the dry ingredients (mixed slightly) and use a Pastry Blender or a Hand Mixer to mix until crumbly.
Beat egg and sour cream slightly and then add to butter/dry ingredients and mix in with a wooden spoon, or knead by hand. The warmer the dough gets, the stickier, so you could start with frozen/grated butter if you are going to use your hands.

**I do 20 minutes on my stone baking sheet, regular baking sheets will probably be a few minutes less.
Serve warm or completely cooled.
