Yes, I have made more scones. I tell you I have fallen in love with scones. My daughter Krista is perfectly okay with this, she loves scones maybe even more than I do. It was Krista who had requested peanut butter scones a while ago. She is also a big fan of peanut butter, which I love peanut butter as well. So I was fine with making a recipe of scones that included peanut butter.
I actually didn’t find a recipe that really appealed to me, so I combined several recipes to make one that sounded good. I decided to add a little topping to the scones, if you look at my past recipes for scones I usually add a little glaze for a little more flavor. My family is into frosting, I guess they like the sweetness that it adds.
These scones are a little on the dryer side. I thought may be a little too dry, but Krista informed me that is how she likes her scones and she found nothing wrong with them. So if you like peanut butter scones I hope you try these. If you don’t like icing on your scones feel free to omit the icing, it will be okay with me.
Peanut Butter Scones
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup milk

Mix together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl.
Cut in butter and peanut butter until mixture there are no pieces of butter larger than a pea. Add the egg and milk, mix well until it makes a soft dough. Divide the dough into 2 balls. Pat each ball into 3/4 inch thick circles, cut each circle into 6 wedges. Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes. Let cool on racks.
Peanut butter icing:
About 2 tablespoons peanut butter (warm in microwave until the peanut butter gets a little runny).

Add enough powder sugar to make a thin icing. (about 1/4 cup)
If icing gets to thick add a little more milk to thin out
