Peanut butter cookies

Paul Rankin's easy recipe for soft, buttery cookies takes less than half an hour.

Ingredients

Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

  2. Place the flour, sugar, peanut butter, egg yolk and butter into a large bowl and mix together until combined to a smooth dough.

  3. With lightly floured hands, break off evenly sized pieces of the dough and roll into walnut sized balls.

  4. Place the dough balls onto a baking sheet lined with silicon paper or baking parchment and gently press each ball with the back of a fork to flatten slightly.

  5. Place in the oven and bake for ten minutes, or until just turning golden-brown.

  6. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and allow to cool for ten minutes.

  7. To serve, place on a serving plate and dust with icing sugar.
