Peanut Butter Crinkles

I really like to have something home made in the pantry and we all love peanut butter in our house, so the other day I made these Peanut Butter Crinkles, and a batch of Anzac Biscuits Recipe. I know the guys love them as I can see them slowly disappearing. 

125g (4ozs) unsalted butter
1/3 cup (70g/2.5ozs) sugar
1/3 cup (70g/2.5ozs) brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/3 cup (100g/3.5ozs) peanut butter
1 1/4 cups plain (all-purpose) flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
pinch salt

PreparationPreheat oven to 180°C  (350°F/Gas 4).  
Cream together butter, sugars, vanilla, lemon rind and peanut butter until light and fluffy.  Add sifted flour, soda and salt and mix until a stiff dough forms.
Shape heaped teaspoonfuls of mixture into small balls with floured hands, place on a lined oven tray allowing room to spread slightly.  Press biscuits down lightly with a fork, first crosswise then lengthwise, for a crinkled effect.  Bake in oven for 15 minutes, until golden brown.  Remove from oven and cool on tray.

  11. Suzie, these look so good! I love peanut butter cookies. I haven't made them in ages and was just thinking about making some kind of cookie soon, so I think PB it is. :)

  12. I'm not very keen on peanut butter but you anzac biscuits look good. Home made biscuits are much nicer but they get eaten too fast!
