Here is the recipe for the Peanut Butter Biscuits which were featured on my Christmas Project. This recipe was given to me by my aunt Pamela while I was in South Africa and has never failed to turn out really good!

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 lb. butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 tsp. bicarbonate of soda
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla essence

Sift together dry ingredients. Cream together sugar, butter and vanilla essence. Add peanut butter and beaten egg, mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix until a dough is formed. Take dough pieces the size of a walnut and place them on a greased cookie sheet. Press each biscuit with a fork twice to create a criss-cross pattern (as shown in the picture). Bake at 180C for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.

I have used smooth peanut butter, as it is the only kind you may find here in Italy. However, I am sure ti will work just as well with the chunky one.
You also don’t need to space the biscuits very far away one from the other when you place them on the cookie sheet, as they will not spread much.
Last tip, roll the dough pieces fast, or either work with a little bit of dough at a time, and leave the rest wrapped in film, as it will tend to become quite dry as minutes go by.

Hope you will try it and enjoy it with family and friends!

In Him,
Alice
