Ingredients

  • 130g crunchy peanut butter
  • 110g salted butter, at room temperature
  • 100g granulated sugar
  • 100g light brown soft sugar
  • 1 eggs
  • 180g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ¼ tsp salt

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC, 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.
