Peanut Butter Biscuits.

I have a guilty secret: I love these biscuits & would eat them every day if I could. Which is why I don't make them too often. In just in loading up this blog page, I have eaten three. So now you see why I cannot be trusted. YOU are however, I am sure, totally trustworthy. Therefore, you must make these right now.

Peanut Butter Biscuits

1 cup plain flour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
Pinch of salt
½ cup butter
¾ cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup crunchy peanut butter

  1. Sift together the flour, soda & salt. Stand aside for later.
  2. Using electric beaters, cream together the butter & sugar, until light & fluffy.
  3. In another bowl, mix the egg & vanilla & gradually add to the butter mixture.
  4. Stir in the peanut butter & blend through thoroughly.
  5. Stir in the dry ingredients & then chill for at least 30 minutes, until firm.
  6. Preheat the oven to 180oC & grease 2 – 3 baking trays.
  7. Spoon out rounded teaspoonfuls of the dough & roll into balls.
  8. Place the balls on to the baking trays & press flat with a fork, making a criss cross pattern.
  9. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes until lightly coloured.
  10. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  11.  Makes approximately 24 biscuits.

More little dresses.

Last weekend & this weekend I made two more of the little dresses, in glorious polka dots, and this time I added the sun hats. I think these will be the last ones of this pattern that I make for a while, but they were fun to do as first projects.
