Filthy good 15-minute cookies

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.

  1. 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.

  2. These were my savour last night… I was just about to scour the internet for a quick sweet fix and this popped up at the top of my reader! Thanks x million!
