    Serves: 20 

    • 4oz self raising flour
    • 2oz caster sugar
    • 2oz butter
    • 3 tbsp light brown sugar
    • 3 tsp peanut butter
    • 1 egg
    • tsp vanilla essence

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Beat peanut butter, both sugars and vanilla essence until light and fluffy.
    2. Work in the egg (if you're adding chocolate add it now!)and stir in the flour to make a firm mixture.
    3. Roll the dough (if it's too sticky to pick up don't worry as it sometimes is) into walnut sized pieces and put them on a greased baking tray, well spaced. If you make them bigger make sure they've got plenty of space as they spread loads
    4. If you've rolled them into little balls if u lightly pat the top down they come out neater and spread less.
    5. Bake for 25mins at 180c or 350f or until risen and golden brown.

    Really easy and tasted fab. They were all gone before they had even cooled.  -  19 Jan 2013


    On the whole OK, I found 25 mins was far too long in the oven as more than half of mine had burnt after 15 mins! From the ones i saved, they were nice, although 3 tsp of peanut butter is nowhere near enough as I could hardly taste it and I put in nearer 4-5 tsp. I also added chocolate chips which is a must!  -  08 Jun 2014
