So, you have just received a phone call and visitors are just checking you are in and they will pop in on the way past in about ten min! Whilst we all love the idea of visitors itf you are anything at all like me you need to know you have something to offer them.
Whilst i can usually knock up a cake quickly I haven’t always got everything needed to do so and if the guests are only ten mins away and not staying long you need to act fast!
These cookies are just that, very fast ,very easy and very moreish! Perfect with a cup of tea warm or cold and making sure I have a jar of peanut butter in the house hidden at the back of the cupboard has served me well over the years!
- 1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line 2 large baking trays with baking parchment.
- 2.Measure the peanut butter and sugar into a bowl. Add the egg and mix until the mixture forms a dough.
- 3.Break off chunks of dough and roll into balls, place, well spaced apart, on the trays. Press the cookies down with the back of a fork in a cross.
- 4.Bake for 12 mins, until golden around the edges and paler in the centre.
