These cookies, are really simple and quick to prepare, and only take about 17 minutes in total to bake.They come from a book from the Love Food range of publications, called 1001 Cupcakes, Cookies, and other tempting treats.
You will need:-
4oz Unsalted Butter (softened)
4oz Peanut Butter (use either Crunchy or Smooth)
4oz Light Brown Sugar
4oz Golden Caster Sugar
1 beaten Egg
Half tspn. Vanilla Extract
3oz Plain Flour
Half tspn. Baking Soda (Bicarbonate of Soda)
Half tspn. Baking Powder
A pinch of salt
4oz Rolled Oats
Pre-heat your oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
Then, all you do is combine the butter and peanut butter in a bowl until smooth, add in the sugars, and beat again. Mix in the egg and vanilla. Then sift in the flour, baking powder, and baking soda, and finally, the rolled (porridge) oats, and give it all a mix to ensure the ingredients are combined.
Take teaspoons of the mix and place them about 2″ apart on the baking tray and flatten slightly with a fork. I baked these in three batches of 12 per batch. I rotated the tray after 6 minutes, and left them in the oven for a further 5 minutes. Leave the cookies to set on the tray before placing them on a wire rack to cool.
Tip: Do not be tempted to be over-generous with the amount you take up for each cookie. They will spread as they bake, so a little of the mixture goes a long way.
