Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

  • Ingredients

    320g plain flour 
    1 teaspoon baking powder 
    1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda 
    1/4 teaspoon salt 
    255g SKIPPY® Smooth Peanut Butter 
    170g butter 
    150g caster sugar 
    165g light brown sugar 
    2 large eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Instruction

    1. Preheat the oven to 175°C. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt; mix well.
    2. In a large bowl, beat together the peanut butter spread and the butter with an electric mixer until smooth. Beat in the caster and brown sugars, eggs and vanilla until blended. Beat in the flour mixture just until blended (refrigerate the dough until easy to handle, if needed).
    3. Shape the dough into 2.5-cm balls. Arrange the cookies 5 cm apart on ungreased baking trays. Gently flatten each cookie; press a criss-cross pattern into the tops with a fork dipped in sugar.
    4. Bake the cookies for 12 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool completely on a wire rack. Store in a tightly covered container.

    This recipe makes about 60 cookies.
