Chocolate Peanut Cookies

The sixth recipe in my Simple Cookies series

100g Butter (at room temperature)
50g crunchy peanut butter
125g Caster sugar (you can use a mix of caster and soft brown sugar)
1 Egg
250g Self-raising flour
25g Cocoa powder

Using a mixer with a paddle/beater attachment, beat the sugar, butter and peanut butter until it is light and creamy.  Add in the egg and beat for another minute.  Next add in the flour and cocoa powder and mix this in slowly until just combined.

Using a 2oz cookie scoop, scoop the dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet.  The mix makes 12-15 cookies.  You can use two spoons to place dollops of the mixture on the sheet either.  Place in a preheated oven at 190ºC for 12-15 mins.  They should be just turning a light golden brown.  Allow to cool for 3-4 mins in the tin and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.  I often double this recipe because they are so delicious.

Let me know how you get on making these.  I would love to hear your feedback and comments.
