Saturday 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!
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
1/2 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
Cream together the butter, peanut butter and both types of sugar.
Add the egg and vanilla and mix.
Mix in the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda/bicarbonate of soda, and salt). Mixture will be crumbly.
Using your hands create balls of the dough and place them on an ungreased baking pan.
Gently 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.
Bake till golden brown on the edges.
Make 15 cookies/biscuits
