Peanut Butter Biscuits


I am simply addicted to these peanut butter biscuits. They are absolutely packed with peanut butter flavour yet, unlike many other peanut butter biscuits, they aren’t over-the-top sweet. Crunchy, nutty and beautifully golden. The perfect accompaniment to your afternoon cuppa!

I may have mentioned that my husband hates peanut butter. And I love it. I did some research and can confirm that he is in the minority. 75% of American households stock peanut butter and South Africans consumed over 25000 tons of the stuff last year. So as far as I’m concerned, I have good reason to continue making peanut butter treats. And so I shall.

If you, like me, are in the majority when it comes to peanut butter loving, I highly recommend you try my Peanut Butter Bars.


Ingredients:

½ cup butter, softened
½ cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
½ cup soft brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
a pinch of salt
1 ¼ cup flour
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper.
  • Cream together the butter, peanut butter and both sugars. Beat for 4-5 minutes, until very creamy.
  • Add the egg and vanilla essence and mix well.
  • Sift together all the dry ingredients, and add gradually to the creamed mixture, beating well after each addition.
  • Roll heaped teaspoonfuls of the dough into balls and place onto the baking tray, 5cm apart. Use the back of a fork to press down twice in a criss-cross pattern.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden and crispy. Leave to cool for a few minutes on the baking tray, then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.

    Just made these with my son, super simple for kids…We took a chance and used Yum Yum Chocolate Peanut Butter, the dough was a little wetter so we added a tbls of flour, also had to bake them for an additional 2 mins. They turned out perfectly, delicious.
