Reese's Cup Scones

I made these Reese Cup Scones a while back, just before I left for college. I wanted to make a few special goodies for my family before I moved, and these were on the list. The scones have a peanut butter base with chocolate chips and chopped Reese's cups mixed throughout. How could you go wrong with that?

Reese’s Cup Scones
makes 20 scones
4 cups flour
2 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp salt
4 egg yolks
½ cup peanut butter
1 cup sour cream
¼ cup shortening
½ cup frozen butter
¼ cup chocolate chips, frozen
½ cup chopped Reese’s cups, frozen
 
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and the sugars. Mix well. In a separate bowl, combine the sour cream with the beaten egg yolks, and then add to dry ingredients. Cut in the butter and shortening. Without working the dough too much, stir in the chocolate chips and Reese’s cups. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface about ¾ inch thick. Cut it into large triangles. Bake for 15 minutes on a large baking stone. Allow the scones to cool for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.

This recipe made a ton, so I had plenty to share with the neighbors or anyone else who is scone worthy.
