Peanut Butter Cookies

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Servings 30 cookies


  • 175 g plain flour
  • 125 g butter room temperature
  • 80 g light muscovado sugar or soft brown sugar
  • 80 g caster sugar
  • 125 g crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder


  • Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4. Lightly grease 1-2 flat baking trays
  • Put the butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and beat until smooth and creamy.
  • Next, beat in the peanut butter. Then stir in the beaten egg, baking powder and the flour. Mix until smooth.
  • Taking teaspoonfuls of the mixture, roll them into a ball and place them onto the baking sheet (a little apart, to allow for spreading during baking). Press down on each cookie with a fork to give nice markings when baked.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes until a little golden. They will still be soft to the touch.
  • When baked, allow to set for about 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire tray to cool. When completely cold, store in an airtight container to keep them fresh.
