Biscuits are very sparse in our larder today, so I decided to make a bunch of fresh baked American peanut butter cookies and a giant peanut butter cookie man.... easy to make and exciting as they emerge from our oven, freshly baked, just perfect to share on a lazy wet and windy Sunday afternoon. Over and out by Robson Gale aged 18 and 3/4 yrs.....Hope you enjoy, I know they won't last long.

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins
  • Yields: 30 Party size


200 Grams Plain flour

1 tsp Baking soda

1 Pinch Salt

125 Grams Butter

325 Grams Chunky peanut butter

140 Grams Soft light brown sugar

1 Medium Egg

3 tbsp Milk

1 tsp Vanilla essence

1 Scattering Peanuts


Robson's Method For The Perfect Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies.

Sift up the flour with the baking powder and salt, beat up the butter, peanut butter and sugar, add egg, milk and vanilla give it another good beating, add the sifted flour mixture and give it a jolly good mixing to form into a light yet firm dough.  Roll into walnut sized balls onto a lined baking tray and press down gently with the palm of your hand, making sure they have a bit of space between them, as they will spread as they bake.  Flatten them slightly and sprinkle with the smashed up peanuts.

Bake in 180c fan oven for 10-12 minutes, keeping a eye on them until golden brown, perfect snack or as a little party treat.
