    • 380g plain flour
    • 60g caster sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 65g shortening (Trex) or butter, melted

    • 2 eggs

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. In a bowl mix flour, sugar, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt.
    3. Mix the shortening or butter, the honey and the peanut butter together well for a couple of minutes. Add eggs one at a time and beat well again.
    4. Add the flour mix to the peanut butter mix and beat together until combined and you have dough.
    5. Roll dough into balls and roll in the caster sugar. Place the balls on greased or lined baking trays and flatten slightly with a fork.

    Altered ingredient amounts. I would add extra honey and peanut butter as the taste was lost when cooked. - 27 May 2011
