This week’s recipe is Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scones from Baked Elements. I love making scones, they are so easy to put together and usually I have the necessary ingredients on hand. As I got ready to get baking this morning, I read through the recipe and my heart fell when I saw that it called for buttermilk. I had skipped breakfast, intending to feast on the spoils of my labor, and the delay as I ran out to the grocery store was tedious. Note to self, double check the ingredients a day or two before baking day!
When I returned with the buttermilk my husband jokingly asked every few minutes if the scones were ready yet. Luckily though the recipe is very easy and quick to pull together. In short order I had the dough mixed together and ready for a 20 minute bake.
If you are a fan of scones, and pumpkin, I also recommend the Pumpkin Scone recipe from King Arthur Flour. They are especially good with ginger chips mixed in if you can find them, and a bit of a nice powdered sugar glaze.
