Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

Yesterday I made peanut butter cookies from a recipe in my Mum’s BBC Good Food Magazine – they were so easy and really delicious, I would really recommend them. The original recipe can be found here.

These were really quick and easy and I think they are perfect for kids to make on their own, next time I might try adding chocolate chips or some extra chopped nuts but they were delicious both warm and cold. I think they tasted more nutty the following day.

Ingredients

200g peanut butter (crunchy or smooth- I used a mix as that was what we had)

175g golden caster sugar

1/2 tsp table salt

1 large egg

Method

  1. Heat oven to 180 degrees/ 160 degrees for a fan oven and line two baking trays
  2.  Mix peanut butter, salt and sugar
  3.  Add in egg- it makes a dough type mixture
  4.  Place large marble size balls of dough spaced out on the trays and gently squash with the back of a fork.
  5. Cook for around 12 minutes until golden around the ages- I found they needed around 16 minutes until they were a nice colour and I turned the oven up for the last few minutes
  6.  Allow to cool slightly on a baking tray before eating!

We would love to hear if you make these, I will definitely be making them again soon.
