Preheat oven and seasoned iron skillet to 375F.
In a large electric mixing bowl, stir together the flour, peanut butter powder, splenda, baking powder, and salt. Cut the butter into 1/2-inch cubes and distribute them over the flour mixture and cut it in with the paddle attachment.
Add dairy, vanilla, and molasses to combine.
Add and combine eggs, 1 at a time.
Add pecans and chocolate chip until just combined.

Tranfer to preheated iron skillet and bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean in the middle of scone.

Thank you Rose. I have to admit these turned out to be a spot on scone texture. Perfect for an egg and scone on the go breakfast. They have a very nice protein count too because of the flour mix.

Oh no Kevin! I just made the blueberry one and now this!? What to do - I guess I may have to freeze some of the blueberry just so I can try this too - why do you do this to me?:laugh:

Dang, I don't have any PB powder and don't want to order any. DH loves PB so his kids recently gave him about a gazillion jars of a gourmet brand as a gift. Kevin, got any ideas about working in regular PB in this? These look fantastic and I wouldn't to mess up that great texture.
Thanks!

Ginny, I am taking a stab at this. I might just sub the PB for the butter, but you will probably need a bit more 'flour', maybe a 1/4 c more.
At least that is how I would tweak it!
HTH, Bette

rexsreine 08-10-2007 06:35 PM

Thanks, Bette. You are a reliable baker and a darned good tweaker, so I'll give your ideas a try. But, first, we have to eat the somewhat LC sour cherry pie I just made DH today...

Ginny I would just replace the butter with PB

Ginny, this is a recipe I got out of my box. Replace 1/2 to 3/4 of the butter with the like amount of creamy PB and that will do it.

rexsreine 08-11-2007 09:51 AM

TaterHead and Kevin, thanks for your suggestions. Another goodie added to my short list of things to make...we just can't eat all I'd like to make!

If anyone tries using reg peanut butter, I'd like to know how it turns out.

This ques is for any LC scone recipe--do they reheat okay? How about freezing?
I freeze all my LC bread but for biscuits, I find they are good right out of the oven but not good reheated the next day. There's only two of us so I have to be able to freeze/reheat most stuff.

Are there any alternatives to using the iron skillet??
I don't have one but I would love to try this recipe!

TIA.

They will turn out just as well on a cookie sheet Jolie. That is what my original HC recipe said to use.

Kevin, my husband fears scones. He says they sound fancy. I want to show him how wonderful a scone is, and I was going to try to use this recipe, but with my remaining chocolate chips being as precious as they are, I was wondering if you have a basic scone recipe. I see someone above mentioned a blueberry version but I can't find it!

I'm in desperate need of a scone to go with my tea. Can you help?
