Ingredients

  • 260 g peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
  •  1 egg
  •  175 g caster sugar

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.  and line baking trays with greaseproof paper.

Combine the peanut butter, sugar and egg and mix until it forms a smooth dough. Add in chocolate chips or desiccated coconut flakes at this stage if you fancy.
Step 2
Drop spoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking tray and place them a few inches apart on the sheet. Flatten them with a fork in a criss-cross pattern.

Bake in a preheated oven for 6 to 8 minutes, until they are golden around the edges. Try not to over-bake, these cookies are best when they are still soft and barely brown on the bottom.

Step 3
Let cookies cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Keep in an airtight container for 3-5 days or freeze them with baking parchment between layers for a treat at a later date.
