Easy Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

This Peanut Butter Cookie recipe is so quick and easy! I had a craving for something Peanut Butter Flavoured last night, so I whipped these up in 25 minutes (and that includes baking time)!

You will need (makes 20 cookies):

  • 4oz / 100g Butter or Margarine
  • 4oz / 100g Caster Sugar
  • 4oz / 100g Peanut Butter (Crunchy or Smooth is fine)
  • 4Tbsp / 60ml Golden Syrup
  • 1 Tbsp Milk
  • 8oz / 200g Plain Flour
  • 1/2 Tsp Bicarbonate of Soda

Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

Preheat your oven to 180degrees. Start by creaming together your butter and sugar, no need to get a mixer out for this recipe, I just used a traditional wooden spoon!

Peanut Butter Cookie Ingredients

You can now add the Peanut Butter (yum, just looking at it makes me hungry), Golden Syrup and Milk. Give it another good mix, I found a metal spoon more helpful at this stage.

Peanut Butter Dough

Keep mixing until you have a creamy soft mix, light brown in colour.

Peanut Butter Flour

Finally add the Plain Flour and Bicarbonate of soda, mix again with your wooden spoon until a thick dough starts to form. Then knead with your hands until the dough forms into a large ball.

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough

Your dough is now ready to bake, how quick and simple was that?

Peanut Butter Cookie Balls

Grab small amounts of the dough and roll into balls in your hand. Place on a lined baking sheet and flatten down with the back of a fork, making a criss cross pattern in the cookie.

Bake Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe makes about 20 of these sized cookies, simply place in the oven and bake for approx 8-10 minutes. When you take the cookies out of the oven, they will still be really soft and you may be worried they are not cooked, but a few minutes on the cooling rack will harden them up, given a crispy outside and chewy centre!

Peanut Butter Cookies Fresh

Leave to cool for a few minutes and enjoy! These go down particularly well with a cup of tea of glass of milk!

Enjoy!
