Madhouse recipe : Peanut butter cookies


I decided to have a clearout in the kitchen cupboards and came across a fairly full jar of peanut butter that needed using up. Sounds like the perfect excuse for making peanut butter cookies to me ! The kids wolfed these down - well OK, I might have helped them too !

Peanut Butter Cookies

ingredients :

300g flour
1tsp baking soda
1tsp salt
200g peanut butter
100g butter, room temperature
150g brown sugar
75g white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp milk


Mix the flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl.


It's entirely up to you whether you use smooth or crunchy peanut butter - I opted for crunchy.


Beat together the peanut butter and butter.


Mix in the sugars.


Add the egg, vanilla and milk and beat together.


Add the flour mixture, half at a time, and mix until just combined.


Roll out half of the dough into small balls of pastry and place on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment.


Press down with a fork and bake for 7 minutes. Repeat with the remaining dough.


Leave to cool in the pan before moving them to a plate. Enjoy !

  5. What a good idea to use up old peanut butter. I particularly like the addition of protein to carbohydrate treats as it slows down the sugar rush of carb-only foods.
