Linda's Peanut Butter Cookies

    32 min

    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.

    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
