This is some yummy comfort food. It is the easiest recipe you could find for baking, as you only need 3 (4) ingredients. You cannot possibly go wrong. Unless you’re THAT person who burns everything.
These are enjoyed by both adults and children and are a perfect activity for both, just beware the battle over who gets to lick the spoon afterwards.
Half a punnet of Raspberries halved (optional)
200 grams Crunchy Peanut Butter (smooth is fine, but I like the crunch!)
1 Large Egg
150 grams of Caster Sugar (most recipes will ask for 175g, but you get added sweetness from the raspberries. Also a good way to cut back a little on sugar).
weigh out all the ingredients and preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
First combine the sugar and the Peanut Butter in a bowl. this will take a while and not all the sugar will combine with the Peanut Butter. in the end you should have quite a crumbly consistency.
Then add the egg, the egg will act like glue and holding both the sugar and the peanut butter together. you should end up with a smooth but sticky mush (its a good mush though).
On a large baking tray place down a sheet of Baking paper. Scoop half a table spoon of moisture onto the sheet and flatten lightly into a circular shape, they don’t have to be perfect.
On top of the circular dough add two halves of raspberries pushing them down slightly.
Continue until you’ve run out of mixture. You should have enough mixture to make 14 cookies.
Place the cookies into the oven for 13-15 mins until golden at the edges.
