Peanut Butter Biscuits
September 12, 2019
These are modified from a recipe provided by Pic’s Peanut Butter, so that’s what I used! They have had the sugar content halved by comparison with the original recipe and I suspect it could be further reduced without any noticeable effect.
The flour is of course gluten free. These are nice crisp biscuits and the little bit of sugar on the outside makes them feel quite luxurious.
The recipe as provided here makes about 20 biscuits so if you have a crowd to feed (or a peanut butter addict in the house) feel free to double it.
1Preheat the oven to 180°C.
2Combine the butter, sugar, peanut butter and vanilla, using an electric mixer if available.
3Add the egg, baking powder, baking soda and about half the flour and blend well.
4Mix in the rest of the flour by hand (unless you have a particularly grunty cake mixer)
5Roll spoonsful of the mix into balls about 3-4 cm in diameter. Roll each ball in sugar and place on a baking tray, leaving room for flattening.
6Flatten each ball with the times of a fork, to make a criss-cross pattern
7Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden brown. Please note that the 20 minutes was measured in a gas oven and you may need less time with an electric oven. Check regularly!
8Transfer to a wire rack to cool, and store in an airtight container
