Peanut Butter Cookies/Biscuits

IMG_0222Saturday and Sunday this week were actually relatively cool and pleasant for the majority of the day, and Sunday I was home to enjoy it! I decided to take advantage of the cooler temps by baking cookies/biscuits. I found this recipe on the Kraft Canada website and decided it looked like the simplest and tastiest to try. I halved the recipe since, well, husband and I just don’t need 30 cookies/biscuits sitting around our flat as we would eat them all. They are great!

Ingredients

1/2 cup/78g butter/margarine

1/2 cup/105 g Peanut Butter

1/2 cup/85g white sugar

1/2 cup(packed)/65g Light Brown Sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 1/4cups/220g plain flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda/bicarbonate of soda

1/4 tsp salt

 

Directions

IMG_0214Cream together the butter, peanut butter and both types of sugar.
IMG_0215Add the egg and vanilla and mix.
IMG_0216Mix in the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda/bicarbonate of soda, and salt). Mixture will be crumbly.
IMG_0217Using your hands create balls of the dough and place them on an ungreased baking pan.
IMG_0218Gently push down the tops of the balls with a fork to help them cook more evenly since these will not spread much in the pan.

IMG_0219Bake till golden brown on the edges.

Make 15 cookies/biscuits
