~ snow day treats ~

I won't call this the perfect recipe, but it was delish in a pinch!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Scones
2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup Peanut Butter & Co.'s Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter
1/3 cup very cold butter stick
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder & salt in bowl.

Measure out peanut butter on top of dry ingredients.

Cut up butter stick into small squares & drop on top of dry ingredients.

Cut peanut butter & butter into dry ingredients (I just use my bare hands) until the mix has a sandy consistency.

Mix in egg & milk until doughy.

Sprinkle counter with flour & brown sugar.

Form half of the dough into a ball and press out into a thick round on the flour/sugar surface (lightly coat top of round with flour/sugar, as well).

Cut into 6 triangles (pizza style).

Repeat for second half of dough.

Place 12 triangles on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 15 minutes & cool before serving.
