Ingredients

  • 100 g softened unsalted butter
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 80 g light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp of salt
  • 180 g self-raising flour
  • 40 g milk chocolate chips
  • 50 g smooth peanut butter

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan.
  • Add together in a bowl butter (100g), caster sugar (100g) and light brown sugar (80g), and beat until you have a fluffy mixture.
  • Add 1 egg, lightly beaten, into the mixture
  • Add 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • Add ½ tsp of salt, sprinkled evenly across the mixture.
  • Sift in 180g of self-raising flour, and beat the mixture until it is fully combined.
  • Add in 40g of chocolate chips.
  • Add in 50g of peanut butter.
  • Mix all the ingredients together until there is an even distribution of chocolate chips and peanut butter across the mixture.
  • Spoon the mixture onto baking paper. For neat looking cookies, the mixture for each cookie should be roughly 2cm high and 6cm wide in a circular shape with sufficient space either side to allow it to widen to about 12cm when cooked.
  • Place into the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, depending on how crisp you like the outside of your cookie to be.
  • Once taken out of the oven allow the cookies to rest in the baking tray for five minutes whilst they harden, before moving to a wire rack to cool.
