    Peanut butter cookies

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes 25 minutes

    Makes: 24


    130g crunchy peanut butter
    110g salted butter, at room temperature
    100g granulated sugar
    100g light brown soft sugar
    1 egg
    180g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
    1⁄2 tsp baking powder
    3⁄4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
    1⁄4 tsp salt 


    1. Preheat the oven to 180 ̊C, gas mark 4. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment. Put the peanut butter, butter, sugars and egg in a food processor and blend until just combined (or beat in a bowl with a wooden spoon). Add the dry ingredients; blend or beat again.

    2. Roll heaped tablespoons of the cookie dough in your hands to make 3cm-wide balls. Put on the baking trays, spaced well apart as they will spread during cooking. Dip the prongs of a fork in flour; use the back to flatten each ball slightly. 

    3. Bake for 10–12 minutes or until the edges begin to turn golden. Cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
