Be a social butterfly...

My Husband is obsessed with peanut butter.  When I was avery little girl, I used to eat peanut butter sandwiches every single day and I think I must’ve overdone it because when Phill spread some on a pice of toast for me (inspired), it had been years since I’d had any!

I love a simple recipe and they don’t come much more simple than these.  Crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle, these little beauties aren’t moreish…they are ALL-ish!!

It’s our seven month wedding anniversary today and my Phill brought a Poinsettia (which he really doesn’t understand the purpose of) home for me.  So these cookies are for him, because he’s lovely and he deserves them 🙂

You will need:

110 grams/4 ounce margarine

130 grams/4.5 ounce peanut butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

100 grams / 3.5 ounce caster sugar

110 grams / 4 ounce soft dark brown sugar

1 egg

60 grams / 2 ounce plain flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder


  • Preheat the oven to 180
  • Combine both types of sugar, margarine, peanut butter and vanilla essence.
  • Add the egg and salt and mix until fully incorporated
  • Sprinkle the baking powder over the mixture and add the flour, mix well.
  • Spoon small balls onto a baking sheet, make sure there is plenty of room around each biscuit
  • Squash down with a fork
  • Bake for between 15 and 20 minutes.  The edges of the biscuits should just be turning brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the tray, the cookies with harden as they cool.
  • Store in an air0tight container and eat within 3 days.

Love Rachel

    They look lovely. I like the sound of crispy on the outside but soft in the middle. The perfect cookie. I also love that you and Phil do such nice things for each other. I always feel soft in the middle when I read about them. I think I might try baking these, which will make everyone in the house wonder where their real mum has gone. I’m sure Toby will help me as he loves to cook and bake.
    Thanks Rachel, you do brighten up my day. x
