Yes, folks, it's here - National Peanut Butter Cookie Day 2017!
We've been baking (of course!) for the occasion and Louise said she'd share her 'simplest ever' recipe. It only has four ingredients!
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Simple as anything: Mix all the above ingredients together in a large bowl. It helps if you measure the sugar first and then use the same cup for the PB, so it doesn't all stick in the inside of the cup with the spread.
Roll the batter into smallish balls (around one inch across) and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Leave a minimum of an inch between each ball and push down gently with a fork to create a grid pattern on the top. Pretty!
And for good measure, I poked some chocolate chips into the tops of the cookies before baking.
Bake the cookies at 180 degrees until they turn golden brown (15 - 20 mins, depending on the size of your cookies).
Cool a little so the cookies are a little more solid, but enjoy warm. Yum!
