Peanut Butter Crinkles

By PaisleyJade - Tuesday, January 11, 2011

I love peanut butter - and what could be better than tasty, crunchy peanut butter biscuits!  Adding chocolate chips to this recipe would make them amazing!

But I must warn you... if you or a family member have an allergy to peanuts, do not make these (even though they look real good).

125g (4oz) butter
½ teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon grated lemon rind
⅓ cup sugar
⅓ cup brown sugar, lightly packed
⅓ peanut butter
1¼ cups plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
pinch salt 

Cream butter, vanilla, lemon rind, sugars and peanut butter.  With a wooden spoon work in sifted flour, soda and salt, making a stiff dough.  Roll heaped teaspoonfuls into small balls with floured hands and place on greased oven trays.  Press biscuits down lightly with a fork, first crosswise and then lengthwise, for a crinkled effect.  Bake in moderate oven for 15 minutes.  Cool biscuits on oven trays.

Makes about 25.  Enjoy!!

Recipe from The Australian Women's Weekly "The Big Book of Beautiful Biscuits".
