Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet; set aside. In a large bowl, combine flours, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in peanut butter and butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; set aside.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together milk and eggs. Add all at once to flour mixture along with chocolate pieces. Stir until moistened (dough will be sticky).

  • Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface. Knead gently for 10 to 12 strokes or until dough holds together and is smooth. Divide dough in half. Pat each portion into a 6-inch circle. Cut each circle into eight wedges, dipping knife into flour between cuts if necessary. Place wedges 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake about 12 minutes or until tops are lightly browned. Transfer scones to a wire rack. Serve while warm.
