Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe
I love making home-made treats for my kids for afternoon tea. I hope that is shows them that I love them and care about them and that I am thinking about them. I also think it is so much better to make a cookie with simple ingredients, than to buy cookies from the supermarket with their long list of unidentifiable ingredients and additives.
These peanut butter cookies, warm and fresh from the oven, make an excellent occasional treat.
Fresh butter, free range eggs, flour, additive free peanut butter, love. All good, wholesome ingredients that come together with great effect, in this little cookie.
:: this cookie dough likes to be rested in the fridge before it gets rolled into cookies and baked. I thought you’d like to be pre-warned.
100g softened butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup of crunchy peanut butter
230g brown sugar
185g plain flour
Preheat oven to 160 c
Place butter, vanilla, peanut butter and brown sugar into a mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until light and creamy.
Add the egg and beat until well combined.
Add the self-raising flour. Mix until well combined and a dough forms. Refrigerate until firm, about 20 minutes.
Scoop out teaspoons full of dough. Roll it into balls. Place it on a baking tray and press lightly with a fork.
Cook for 15- 20 minutes then allow them to cool before eating.
