Sweet treats!

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


110g butter

130g crunchy peanut butter

100g granulated sugar

110g brown sugar

1 egg

160g plain flour

1 tsp baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 190'C
  2. Cream together butter, peanut butter, sugar and beat in eggs with handheld mixer
  3. Stir in flour and b.p. and mix till all incorporated.
  4. Roll into 1" balls and put on lined baking sheet.
  5. Flatten each ball with a fork, making criss-cross pattern
  6. Optional - make small indentation and put ¼tsp jam in centre of each biscuit.
  7. Bake for 9-10 minutes till cookies brown. Do not over-bake
  8. 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, tiny scooand 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.
