Peanut butter cookies

Triple tested. For your success every time.

We trawled though all the Australian Women's Weekly peanut butter cookie recipes from over the years before narrowing our selection down to three, which we taste-tested, side-by-side. This was voted the winner for peanut taste and crisp chewy texture.


Peanut butter cookies

  • 60 g (2 ounces) butter
  • 1/2 cup (130g) smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup (110g) caster (superfine) sugar
  • 1/2 cup (110g) firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (140g) roasted unsalted peanuts, chopped coarsely
  • 40 g g (1½-ounce) chocolate-coated honeycomb bar, chopped coarsely
  • 1 cup (150g) self-raising flour


Peanut butter cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F. Grease three oven trays; line each with baking paper.
  2. Beat butter, peanut butter and sugars in a small bowl with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Beat in egg until just combined. Stir in peanuts and honeycomb, then sifted flour.
  3. Roll 1½ tablespoons of mixture into balls; place 3cm (1¼ inches) apart on trays. Flatten mixture slightly, pushing any nuts or honeycomb back into mixture if they fall out.
  4. Bake biscuits 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on tray.
