  • 450g plain flour
  • 8 tbsp caster sugar
  • 8 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • 4 free-range egg yolk
  • 200g butter (or flora light), softened (not melted)
  • icing sugar, for dusting


    1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
    2. Place the flour, sugar, peanut butter, egg yolk and butter into a large bowl and mix together until combined to a smooth dough
    3. With lightly floured hands, break off evenly sized pieces of the dough and roll into walnut sized balls
    4. Place the dough balls onto a baking sheet lined with silicon paper or baking parchment and gently press each ball with the back of a fork to flatten slightly.
    5. Place in the oven and bake for 10/15 minutes, or until just turning golden-brown
    6. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and allow to cool for ten minutes. To serve, place on a serving plate and dust with icing sugar.

I have perfected this... use regular granulated sugar insteand of caster sugar... much sweeter!

Dryer and less peanuty than I expected. I had 5 yolks to use up so increased the ingredients proportionally and filled up a roses tin. You get a lot of biscuits from this and they are quite eatable. Would probably be better with more nuts or peanut butter in the mix.

this recipe makes so many, i have since only used half the amount of all ingredients and added 30g chopped nuts and tried using wholemeal flour instead... very nice and i prefer this method
