Father’s Day Peanut Butter Cookies

With the inspiration of Father’s Day and a free Sunday afternoon I decided to make some cookies for my family to enjoy! With a whole cupboard of ingredients plus a brand new jar of my Grandma’s marmalade I came up with the idea of peanut butter and marmalade cookies.

The Recipe is very easy!

3 level tablespoons of peanut butter
3 level tablespoons of soft brown sugar
1 egg
50g self raising flower
50g butter
50g caster sugar
2 level teaspoons of marmalade
Pinch of salt

Start by mixing all the ingredients in a bowl until you get a sticky mixture. Now the fun part… get your hands dirty and turn that sticky mess into 15 little balls all around the same size. However the charm of homemade cookies is that they all end up different shapes and sizes which mine certainly did. Press them down with a fork and then pop them in the oven for 15 mins at 200 degrees C or until they are golden.

They are something that Mary Berry herself would be proud of! The mix of peanut butter and marmalade may sound odd but trust me, it’s that salty sweet thing that makes these cookies delicious.
