1/2 cup maragarine
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cup plain flour
Mix the margarine, peanut butter and sugars together until smooth.
Add the egg and then the plain flour. Mix until well combined.
Roll into balls about the size of golf balls. Place on a large greased baking tray and bake in the centre of the oven at 190C or gas mark 5 for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. Should make about 12 cookies.
I hadn’t made these for ages, but when I discovered that nobody was eating the peanut butter which I had bought because it was a supermarket own brand which they didn’t like, I thought I would use the rest of it up baking these cookies again.
I must admit the cheaper peanut butter didn’t even look very appetising, it was all watery, but it was absolutely fine for baking with. Waste not, want not and all that.
These cookies are especially popular with young children and are good for putting into lunch boxes.
