Beat the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, egg, vanilla and salt together
until smooth, slowly adding the flour while beating
Roll tablespoon-size portions into balls and press them onto a greased flat
baking sheet or tray
Place in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, being careful not to overcook (the
cookies should be moist and chewy rather than hard)
Store in an airtight container (makes around 24 cookies)
Chris says: This recipe was submitted to
us by Lisa of Calamvale in Queensland, and it's a great variation
on the classic peanut cookie recipe.
It's a nifty way to make cookies using peanut butter (or peanut paste, as
we call it here in Kingaroy).
These peanut cookies will spread out on the baking tray, so make sure
you leave plenty of room between each cookie ball. If you'd like to give
them a criss-cross crinkled effect, press the balls down with a fork - first
crosswise, then lengthwise.
