Crunchy Peanut Butter Cookies!


How could I resist this fab recipe from the BBC website…and being created by Paul Rankin from ready Steady Cook it just has to be a winner! Whoo hoo…crunchy peanut butter cookies for later.


Ok, as I glanced the list of ‘needs’ I could see that I had everything Paul has requested…and guess what…I have a free range egg!…yes one of my very own, well the girlies anyway, freshly laid and oh so carefully picked from their warm hay beds.

So I urge you all…yes girls and boys, to pop on your pinnnies, gather your ingredients and start the cookie making process. It will be fun, it will be worth the effort…all 30mins of it…and if it takes longer, I shall myself be contacting the lurvely Paul Rankin and asking why?  

Bits and Pieces

8 tbsp plain flour
2 tbsp caster sugar
2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
1 free-range egg yolk
50g/1¾oz butter, softened
icing sugar, for dusting


Get going….

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
2. Pop the flour, sugar, peanut butter, egg yolk and butter into a big bowl and mix together until combined to a nice smooth dough.
3. With lightly floured hands, so it doesn’t all stick to your mitts in a gloopy mess, break off evenly sized pieces of the dough and roll into walnut sized balls.
4. Pop the dough balls onto a baking sheet lined with silicon paper or baking parchment and press each ball with the back of a fork to flatten slightly.
5. Pop in the oven and bake for ten minutes, or until just turning a nice golden-brown.
6. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack carefully and allow to cool for ten minutes.
7. Dust with icing sugar……………………………and eat!!!!

I live at the edge of a pretty little town at the foot of the Malvern Hills, where days are long and always sunny, my house tidy, cupboards full, and the washing pile non existent...hmm maybe not.
