I made some cookies, which I don't very often do. Modified a recipe from the internet AllRecipes site. And they came out surprisingly well, considering it was 9.45 at night and I was fairly tired
130g crunchy peanut butter
100g granulated sugar
110g brown sugar
160g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
- Preheat oven to 190'C
- Cream together butter, peanut butter, sugar and beat in eggs with handheld mixer
- Stir in flour and b.p. and mix till all incorporated.
- Roll into 1" balls and put on lined baking sheet.
- Flatten each ball with a fork, making criss-cross pattern
- Optional - make small indentation and put ¼tsp jam in centre of each biscuit.
- Bake for 9-10 minutes till cookies brown. Do not over-bake
- Cool on wire rack
They seem to be keeping fairly well in an airtight tin - but as they taste good, we are eating them fairly fast! The PB was from Aldi, and the flour and butter were Sainsbury's 'basics' - so not too expensive. All Sainsbury's sugar is fairtrade now, which is good.
I used my 1"ice cream scoop which is incredibly useful for biscuit making. I got it in Boston, USA. I think Lakeland really ought to stock them.
