Crunchy Peanut Cookies

This is a recipe I got from a book. It’s a really easy cookie recipe, and would be great to do with the kids.
I don’t know the US measurements, but this website seems good at changing them


  • 125gm softened butter
  • 150gm of chunky peanut butter
  • 225gm sugar (I use caster, but it does say granulated)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 150gm plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 75gm unsalted natural peanuts. chopped.


  1. Grease 2 large baking sheets Place butter and peanut butter in large bowl and beat together. Gradually add the sugar and beat together well. Add the egg, a little at a time, until it’s combined. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into peanut butter mixture. Add peanuts and bring all together to form a soft dough. Wrap in cling and chill in fridge for about 45 minutes, or longer if possible.
    Preheat oven to 190C/375F/Gas mark 5. Form dough into 20 balls and place them on baking sheet about 2 inches apaprt, flatten them slightly with your hand.
    Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown (I have a fan oven and they usually take about 8-10 minutes)
    They come out very very soft, so wait a couple of minutes, and then cool on a wire rack.
