Peanut Butter Cookies


130g crunchy organic peanut butter

110g organic butter, at room temp

100g granulated sugar

100g light brown soft sugar

1 egg

180g plain flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp bicarb of soda

1/4 tsp salt


Oven 180 degrees celcius, gas mark 4.

Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.

Mix together the peanut butter, butter, sugars and egg (I use a wooden spoon and bowl, rather than food processor, as it keeps the peanut chunks better). Mix until just combined. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix.

Roll 1/2 to 3/4 of a tablespoon of mixture in your hands to make balls, and put them on the trays. Make sure they're spaced out as they spread. Use a floured fork to flatten each ball slightly.

Bake for 10 - 12 mins or until edges turn golden.

Cool for 5 mins before transferring to a wire rack.

Makes about 30 cookies, and takes no more than 30 mins to do in total. (Adapted from a Waitrose recipe.)
