Peanut Butter Cookies

My Husband and youngest daughter are a wee bit fanatical when it comes to peanut butter.  It’s a constant struggle to maintain a supply that can satisfy their needs!

So this recipe is a real treat for them and for anyone else that manages to get a cookie before they eat them all 😁

I love a simple recipe and they don’t come much more simple than these.  Crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle, these little beauties are divine.

You will need:

110 grams/4 ounce margarine

130 grams/4.5 ounce peanut butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

100 grams / 3.5 ounce caster sugar

110 grams / 4 ounce soft dark brown sugar

1 egg

60 grams / 2 ounce plain flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 180
  • Combine both types of sugar, margarine, peanut butter and vanilla essence.
  • Add the egg and salt and mix until fully incorporated
  • Sprinkle the baking powder over the mixture and add the flour, mix well.
  • Spoon small balls onto a baking sheet, make sure there is plenty of room around each biscuit

  • Squash down with a fork
  • Bake for between 15 and 20 minutes.  The edges of the biscuits should just be turning brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the tray, the cookies with harden as they cool.

  • Store in an airtight container and eat within 3 days – not that they’ll last that long!
