Peanut Butter Cookies


I got a pretty cool cookie stamp from Coolstuff.se (made by Suck UK) to try out! Isn't it cute? I wasn't sure what cookies would work well with it though - I think shortbread would be ideal, or at least cookies that don't contain much in the way of rising agents.


These ones worked ok, but still puffed a bit more than I had expected. The cookies looked much better before baking! They also became much larger than I had expected - these are indeed American-sized. They freeze well, and are absolutely delicious.


Peanut Butter Cookies
24 large cookies

200 g unsalted butter, at room temperature
120 g sugar
100 g brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
200 g peanut butter
220 g flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
70 g salted peanuts, finely chopped

Beat the butter and both types of sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, and mix well. Stir in the peanut butter, and mix until it's a smooth batter.

Add the baking soda and flour - don't overmix. Finally fold in the peanuts.

Place the dough in the fridge for a while if it's sticky. Then roll into balls and flatten - either with a cake stamp, or with a glass dipped in flour.

Bake at 175°C for about 12 minutes. Let cool before attempting to move them from the baking sheet.

Certified home-made:) The cookie stamp looks like a company seal used in UK and former colonies. The company seal is dipped in ink first. I wonder whether you could dip the cookie stamp in food coloring or something more natural before stamping, it would make the cookies prettier perhaps???
