Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe | Miranda's Notebook

My Mum has been making this recipe for peanut butter cookies for as long as I can remember. It’s now a favourite of mine too: the recipe only takes about 5 minutes to pull together, and the cookies are quick to bake as well as to cool – perfect for when you’re in a rush.

American baking is my ultimate comfort food, and curling up on the couch with a magazine and one of these biscuits is the perfect pick-me-up after a week of flu!

Peanut Butter Cookies
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
These peanut butter cookies can be thrown together in a few minutes and are the perfect treat.

  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup peanut butter (I used chunky, but you can use smooth if preferred)
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 beaten egg
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 cup flour
  1. Set oven to 175° C (155° Fan) and lightly grease two cookie sheets.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
  3. Drop the mixture by teaspoonfuls onto the greased cookie sheets.
  4. Lightly press the balls of cookie dough down with a floured fork in 2 directions.
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until lightly browned (the cookies will firm up more when cooling, so don't worry if they still seem squidgy).
  6. Place the biscuits on a wire rack and allow to cool.
