Peanut Butter Biscuits

I love this version of peanut butter biscuits which I found on Snowflake’s website a while back.  They keep well (at least I think so – in our household nothing really lasts long enough to test that theory!).  Like most things I make they are very quick to prepare and I made this batch before breakfast this morning while the porridge was cooking.

Peanut Butter Biscuits

125 g butter

80 ml white sugar (65 g)

80 ml brown sugar (65 g)

3 ml vanilla essence

125 ml peanut butter (150 g) (smooth or crunchy)

1 extra-large egg, beaten

375 ml flour (210 g)

2 ml salt

5 ml bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)

Cream the butter, sugars and essence.  Beat in the peanut butter and egg.

Sift the remaining dry ingredients together and add to the sugar mixture.  Roll into small balls and place on greased baking trays.  Press flat lightly, using a fork (or anything else that will make a pattern).

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for 10 – 12 minutes.  Turn onto a wire rack to cool.

Makes 45 – 50
