Skippy Peanut Butter Scones

Skippy Peanut Butter Scones

I used Skippy brand Super Chunky peanut butter to make easy American scones. The peanut bits are so good!!

Ingredients: 6 scones

☆ Cake flour
180 g
☆ Bread (strong) flour
20 g
☆Granulated sugar
4 tablespoons
☆Baking powder
1 tablespoon
☆Salt
a pinch
●Unsalted butter
30 g
● Skippy brand Super Chunky peanut butter
70 g
◎Beaten egg
1 medium egg
◎Milk
4 tablespoons

Steps

1. Put the ☆ ingredients in a bowl, and mix well with a whisk. Add the ● ingredients. Holding the whisk vertically, break up the ● ingredients while tapping the whisk up and down, until the flour and ● are mixed together into a crumbly texture.
2. Add the ◎ ingredients and cut them in with a rubber spatula. Gather the dough together, wrap in plastic, and rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
3. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Flour your work surface generously with bread flour (not listed in the ingredients), and roll the dough out into a rectangle with a rolling pin.
4. Fold twice to make 4 layers. Flatten the dough with the rolling pin to make it 2 cm thick.
5. Cut the 4 sides off with a pastry scraper
6. Bake for 15 minutes and they're done. Bake the scraps too and use them for taste-testing.
7. This is Skippy Super Chunky peanut butter. It has no sugar added, so it's well suited for baking.
