Equipment

  • 2 x baking trays

Ingredients

  • 125 grams butter softened
  • cup caster sugar 70 grams
  • cup brown sugar 60 grams
  • 1 egg
  • 1 & ½ cups plain flour 225 grams
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup peanut butter 120 grams
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius (fan-forced) and line two trays with baking paper.
  • Place the butter, vanilla extract, caster sugar and brown sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer and mix for 6 - 8 minutes until pale and fluffy.
  • Add the peanut butter and stir through.
  • Add the egg, plain flour and bicarbonate of soda and mix on a low speed until combined.
  • Use a tablespoon to scoop up the mixture and roll into balls. Place the balls onto your prepared baking tray and use a fork to lightly press down on the biscuits. Continue until all of the mixture has been used.
  • Place the biscuits into your pre-heated oven and bake for 12 - 14 minutes or until the begin to brown.  Carefully remove the trays from the oven and allow the biscuits to cool on them for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

  • We used our Thermomix to make these biscuits, however they are also super simple to make conventionally too.
  • You will get around 36 biscuits when using a tablespoon to scoop the mixture. 
  • You can also make larger biscuits if you prefer, you will just need to give your biscuits a little bit longer in the oven.
  • Both the dough and the cooked biscuits can be frozen for up to three months.
