Peanut butter and chocolate cookies!

These are pnutty and sweet and if you add some proper chocolate chunks they’d be unbelievably delicious and fat makingly good. We ate them quick. They are of course, absolutely not suitable for people who suffer with nut allergies…

4 oz unsalted butter (but I never have that so don’t worry)

4oz soft brown sugar (which I also didn’t have so I used good for me lite white)

9 oz plain flour & 1 oz cocoa powder

1 large egg (Florence advises you use freerange)

2 oz of peanut butter (preferably crunchy)

some honey roasted peanuts bashed about a bit.

Preheat your oven to 190C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

  • cream the butter and sugar together
  • add the peanut butter and the egg and beat together
  • stir in the flour and the cocoa and knead it until it comes together in a dough
  • shove in the bashed nuts if you are using them
  • now’s a good time to add chocolate chunks too…

Pull of small chunks of dough and roll them into a ball and flatten them into biscuits the size you like. I made mine quite small and fat. Then I had to add a few minutes to the cooking time to make sure they were cooked through.

I ended up with ‘well done’ biscuits which is exactly how I like them - if you like pale and thin little critters, that’ll work, just make sure you take them out before they burn.

Put in the oven for around 10 mins (more if they’re portly).
