Vania Cotta
These peanut butter cookies are crumbly, dense, not that sweet and have a slight crunch too from the crunchy peanut butter added to the recipe.

Ingredients
  

  • 225 g Self-raising flour
  • 75 g Baking Spread/Unsalted Butter cold
  • 50 g Crunchy Peanut Butter
  • 1 tbsp Soft dark brown cane sugar
  • 2 tbsp Light & Mild Honey

Instructions
 

  • Heat the oven to 180°C and line two baking sheets with baking paper.
  • Measure all your ingredients and set aside.
  • To a large bowl, add the flour. Next add the cold butter, crunchy peanut butter and rub the butters into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • In a small pan, mix together the honey and sugar. Melt these on a low flame until the sugar dissolves.
  • Add this to the flour mixture and form a firm dough. Knead the dough lightly.
  • Divide the mixture into 16-20 balls. Place them on the baking sheet and finally press them with a wet fork or spoon to flatten slightly.
  • Bake for about 12-15 mins until they're slightly brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let them cool on a cooling rack for a few mins. They will harden as they cool. Store them in an airtight container or eat warm.

Notes

  • To make these cookies sweeter substitute the soft dark brown sugar with light brown sugar or even caster sugar. Also, substitute the mild & light honey with normal honey.
  • While melting the sugar in the honey, make sure it is on a low flame to avoid burning. 
  • You can make 8-10 cookies by halving the ingredients mentioned above. Make sure to measure all the ingredients to achieve the right consistency. 
  • You can decorate the top of the cookies with some lightly roasted crushed peanuts.(optional)
  • You can shape the cookies however you like, maybe slightly flatter. 
  • Store these cookies in an airtight container once cooled completely. These cookies have a great shelf life.
