Peanut butter cookies are very popular in the United States, where people often enjoy them together with a glass of milk in the afternoon. They also make great gifts and are perfect for bringing along to an afternoon or morning tea. We lined an old cookie tin with parchment paper and then wrapped the peanut butter rounds in festive Christmas cellophane. Stored in a dry place away from light, these cookies will keep for at least two weeks.
Add the butter, peanut butter and both types of sugar to a mixing bowl and whisk until creamy, then stir in the egg. Combine the flour with the baking powder and add the mixture gradually to make a soft, pliable dough.
