A work friend of my Mum's is getting married this Saturday and her colleagues wanted to give her a little party on her last day at work as a single girl! They decided that they would all bring in something they had baked and have a little surprise tea party for her! Apparently everyone made a valiant effort! Even the one guy, Peter, who impressed everyone with his Cornflake Cakes and Mexican Wedding Cookies!
Mum asked me to make something if I had time so I took the opportunity to knock up a batch of Peanut Butter Crinkles (with an added kiss!) These are super yummy and take about 20 minutes to make and bake so even I had time to make some!!!
I thought I'd share the recipe so you can try them for yourself!
(makes 20-25 cookies)
6 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
2oz caster sugar
2oz soft brown sugar
6oz plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 180 deg C/gas 4.
Place butter, peanut butter, sugars and vanilla in a bowl and cream together. Add flour and baking powder and mix to form a firm dough.
Roll heaped teaspoon of dough into balls with floured hands. Place on lined baking sheet and flatten slightly with a fork.
Bake 14-15 mins to deep golden brown and allow to cool on sheet for 2-3 mins. Press a chocolate kiss or giant chocolate button into center of hot cookies and transfer to cooling rack to cool properly.
And there was even enough for a treat for James for looking after Sophie while I cooked!
He loved them (and he doesn't even like peanut butter!)
I didn't have any though, still being very good on Weight Watchers!!
Lots of Love
