Peanut butter and choc chip cookies
Following a request for gluten free chocolate chip cookies, I tried to make these. I remember a recipe for peanut butter cookies from when I was younger....mmmm.
So, melt 50g of butter. Add 100g ground almonds, 1 egg yolk, 50g sugar, 25g of crunchy peanut butter, 1/2 tsp baking powder, handful of dark chocolate chips and mix well.
Divide mixture and roll into 12 small balls. Place on a baking tray lined with grease-proof paper, and squash slightly with a fork. Doing this twice at right angles makes the pretty criss-cross pattern. Bake at 180 degree C for about 20 minutes. Allow to cool before removing from the tray.
