    About this recipe: Always a welcome treat while we did our homework after school, this recipe has been in my family for a long time. Mum used to press them down with a fork but I have pressed half a peanut into each before baking.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 10 

    • 125g butter, softened to room temperature
    • 130g crunchy peanut butter
    • 100g caster sugar
    • 110g dark brown soft sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 185g self raising flour
    • peanuts, to garnish (optional)

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:32min 

    1. Beat together the butter, peanut butter and sugars.
    2. Add the egg, mix and gradually add the flour till it forms a soft dough.
    3. Roll teaspoonsful of the mixture into balls and place onto a lined baking tray, leaving room enough to spread.
    4. Press half a peanut into the top of each.
    5. Bake at 180 C / Gas 4 (160 Fan) for 10 -12 minutes until brown. Transfer to wire racks for cooling.

    Lovely little biscuits. I added a bit more flour than the recipe stated so that they wouldn't spread much. Won't last long in our house! - 20 May 2016
