    Place the flour, sugar, peanut butter, egg yolk and butter into a large bowl and mix together until combined to a smooth dough

    With lightly floured hands, break off evenly sized pieces of the dough and roll into walnut sized balls

    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.

    Place in the oven and bake for 10/15 minutes, or until just turning golden-brown

    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.
