Filthy good 15-minute cookies

March 13th 2011

Peanut butter cookies

I just whipped up these cookies as a post-dinner Sunday treat. Brilliantly, they contain just four ingredients, all of which are store-cupboard staples, and making them takes under fifteen minutes all in. I call them filthy because with those ingredients, it feels like a very sinful treat!

Peanut butter cookies

The recipe can be found all over the internet: it’s just 1 cup of sugar (i used a mix of golden caster and light muscavado for extra chewiness), 1 cup crunchy peanut butter, 1 egg and a dash of vanilla extract. (I used my sweet Matryoshka M-cups to measure out the ingredients, but if you lack American measure guides a cup is approx 110g.) Then just dollop 12 well-spaced blobss onto a baking paper-lined tray and bake for ten minutes at 180c – don’t overcook them, they should still look dangerously squidgy when they come out but will harden up a little as they cool. I reckon they’d taste even more filthy good with some choc chips thrown in. Nom nom.

    This is my idea of baking, it sounds completely foolproof!

    4 ingredients? Genius! Shame I don't like peanut butter, otherwise I'd try it myself :(

    I've made some peanut butter cookies tonight actually but they weren't half as easy as these to make! I think I will have to try these when I'm in the mood for a quick bake.

    Anything with peanut butter in it has to be divine!
