Peanut Crunch Cookies

Prepartion Time
Total Time

This is the second of the biscuits that I cooked for the Twookie Party. Again, this recipe comes from the book Best-Ever Book of Cookies by Catherine Atkinson. This time I made no modifications to the recipe, as I think they're fine just the way they are.

Ingredients
Muscavado Sugar (Light)
115g
Peanut Butter (Preferably crunchy)
150g
Egg
1
Butter
115g
Self-Raising Flour
150g
Baking Powder
½ tsp
Other Requirements

Mixing bowl, electric hand whisk or beater, 2 baking trays and a wire rack.

These cookies were so fast and easy to make I think they will become a favourite for those days when you really need something baked with your cup of tea.

Preheat the oven to 190°C. Weigh out your sugar and butter into a bowl together and whisk well until pale and fluffy. This takes at least 3 minutes but probably closer to 5 depending on your whisking method. I used an electric hand mix.

Add the egg and again, whisk until thoroughly beaten into the mixture.

Now add the baking powder, flour, and peanut butter.

Beat until well mixed.

Grease the baking trays well. I like to use old butter wrappers for the job, as it uses up the little ends of butter that would otherwise go to waste. This way they fulfill their buttery destiny.

Once the baking trays are greased, measure out a dessertspoonful of mix, spaced well apart. Then place in the oven and bake for 15 mins. If they still look a little pale after this time give them another 5 mins.

After 15 - 20 mins they should be a lovely golden brown colour. Take them out of the oven and leave to cool on the tray for 5 mins as they will still be a little soft at this stage. After the 5 mins, carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Serve with a nice cup of tea or a glass of milk.
