Peanut Butter Biscuits

Whether you call them cookies or biscuits, when four o’clock rolls around, we all need something to have with a hot cup of tea.

These Peanut Butter Biscuits are made in one bowl and the kids get involved in the rolling and squishing of the dough. My toddler eats more of the peanuts than he puts on top, but all in all, it keeps them out of mischief for a few minutes.

I sometimes make up the dough and put it in a ziplock bag in the fridge or freezer until I have time to bake them off. It only takes 10 minutes (or less) to make the dough, then if someone says they are popping in for tea, I can take the dough out of the fridge and make a batch up in no time. I love to have my home smelling like fresh baking when someone stops by.  (Domestic godness 101!)

This makes 30 biscuits.

250ml flour

3ml salt

3ml baking powder

120g butter

190ml light brown sugar

1 egg

250ml crunchy peanut butter

5ml vanill extract

Peanuts to decorate

Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.

Beat in the egg and mix well

Add the dry ingredients, peanut butter and vanilla and combine well. The dough will be quiet sticky.

Chill dough in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 180ºC

Grease two or three baking trays

Roll chilled dough into golfball sized balls and place them on the prepared baking trays.

Press a dessert spoon onto the top of each ball to press the dough flat.

Press a peanut into each cookie.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until lightly browned around the edge of each biscuit.

Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.
