Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scones

If you like peanut butter and chocolate together you're going to love these scones.  They are moist, peanut buttery with milk chocolate chips running through them and they are great for breakfast or snack.

Here's what you need:

2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tbl. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt (I use Kosher)
5 Tbl. butter, cold and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 cup peanut butter (I use Skippy)
1 egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup Reece's Peanut Butter chips
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In the bowl of a stand mixer or a large mixing bowl, place all the dry ingredients except the chips and mix to incorporate.
 Add the cold butter pieces and process until it resembles a fine crumble.  
Add peanut butter and process until it resembles sand, scraping down the sides as you go.
Add the egg, vanilla, and cream and process until it forms a dough.  Add the peanut butter chips and the chocolate chips and mix until incorporated, not more than 30 seconds.  It will resemble cookie dough.
Dump dough onto a piece of parchment and kneed two to three times until everything is incorporated.
Pat dough into a 9" circle and using a sharp knife cut into 8 wedges.
Place on a Silpat or parchment line baking sheet and bake for 18 - 20 minutes.  Do not over bake.  I always touch the top and it should give little when done (feel puffy).
Yum, yum, yum!

Store in an airtight container.

Serves - 8
