Peanut Butter Biscuits with Golden Berries Jam
Updated: Jun 9, 2021
Inspired by Princess Pamela's Soul Food Cookbook
I dont often find recipes for peanut butter biscuits. I thought this one was pretty unique. Paired with golden berries jam, the flavors have the capacity to transport people back to their childhood memories, when peanut butter and jelly sandwiches provided sustenance to run around a playground for hours. To balance the tropical, candy-like golden berry jam, I added more peanut butter than the original recipe suggested, which provided a bold and creamy note to the biscuits.
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
3/4-1 cup cold whole milk
1/4 cup light brown sugar
Yields: 13 biscuits with a 2.5 inch cutter
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 12-15 minutes
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl.
Add the butter until the mixture looks like sand.
Add the peanut butter, then add the milk.
Mix until the the dough comes together.
Place the dough on a lightly floured counter.
Knead a few times, then roll it out so that it’s 1/2-inch thick.
Cut with a biscuit cutter, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet 1-inch apart.
Sprinkle the top with brown sugar.
Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Serve with any jam or make golden berries jam.
