This is my favourite peanut butter cookie recipe. It’s chewy, peanut buttery and the brown sugar gives it a unique smoky tang. So if you’re looking for sugary sweet cookies, these aren’t for you!
Ingredients (for 12 regular cookies)
1/2 cup soft brown sugar
1/2 peanut butter (your preference chunky or smooth)
1 small egg
1. Mix all 3 ingredients together with a fork until well incorporated.
2. Line a cookie tray with parchment paper and drop small spoonfuls of the dough, leaving more room between each spoonful than I did with my batch!
3. Bake at 160C for 8 minutes. Cookies are ready when they spring back when you poke them.
4. Let cool completely before carefully removing them using an offset spatula.
Isn’t this just the easiest recipe? If you don’t have brown sugar, you could go ahead and use normal caster sugar, but it will not have the smoky flavour the brown sugar gives.
