Oh these are great biscuits! The peanut butter adds a richness and the peanut flavor is subtle. My biscuits baked up very tender and light, and perfect topped with butter and strawberry preserves. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! Made for Fall Pick-A-Chef 2011

Really lovely, mildly p.b. flavored biscuits. I made a half recipe and enjoyed two for lunch. I spread them with no sugar added apricot jam and paired them with a good cuppa Tetley's tea. One of the things I like about biscuits and scones is how easy they are to make and the goodness you get for such a small amount of work. The recipe makes biscuits that are very nicely textured inside.
