½ cup peanut butter
125g butter or margarine

1 cup brown sugar

½ tsp vanilla essence

1 large egg

1 ¼ cups of cake flour

½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

¼ tsp salt

50g chopped nuts

  • Using an electric beater, beat the peanut butter, butter/margarine and sugar together.
  • Still using the beater, add the vanilla essence and egg (no need to beat separately).
  • With a spoon mix in the following: flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt and nuts.
  • Tip the dough out of the mixing bowl and wrap it in plastic cling wrap.
  • Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes.
  • Place walnut sized balls onto a greased baking tray. Press down with a fork dipped in flour. If you would like crispy biscuits then push the fork down quite hard making a thin biscuit, if you prefer chewy biscuits, push down lightly making a thicker biscuit.
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C for about 10 – 12 minutes. Everyone’s oven is different so times may vary, keep checking them. You are looking for a biscuit that is slightly brown along the edges.
  • Place biscuits on a wire rack to cool as soon as they come out of the oven.

    Makes +- 3 dozen medium sized biscuits
