This is an easy one bowl recipe, which makes yummy peanut butter biscuits that aren’t too sweet! I even burnt a tray load (I always forget about biscuits baking faster than muffins and forget to check them in time) and they still got eaten!
Makes about 20.
125g butter, softened
150g chunky peanut butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
½ teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
75g unsalted peanuts, chopped
Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Place the butter and peanut butter in a large bowl and beat together. Gradually add the sugar and beat together well. Add the egg, a little at a time, until it is combined. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the peanut butter mixture. Add the peanuts and bring all of the ingredients together to form a soft dough.
Wrap the dough in cling film and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to
190°C. Form the dough into small balls (about 20) and place them on the prepared baking trays about 5cm apart. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Leave to cool on wire racks.
