Peanut Butter & Sesame Cookies
125g Butter, very soft
85g Caster Sugar
80g Demerara Sugar
125g smooth Peanut Butter
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
200g Plain Flour
1tsp Baking Powder
50g Sesame Seeds
Preheat your oven to 170c/Gas Mark 4. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
Cream the butter, caster & demerara sugars together until soft and fluffy.
Add the peanut butter & vanilla and mix well.
Now add the flour & baking powder to the peanut butter mixture. Fold in well, but don't overbeat as it will make the cookies tough.
Roll teaspoons of the dough into balls, roll in the sesame seeds and place onto the lined trays, allowing some expansion room. Flatten out slightly - the cookies will crack in the oven as they bake, giving them their lovely appearance.
Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes on the tray before transferring to wire cooling racks.
