  • 200g peanut butter (crunchy or smooth is fine)
  • 175g golden caster sugar
  • ¼ tsp fine table salt
  • 1 large egg



  • Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line 2 large baking trays with baking parchment.
  • Measure the peanut butter and sugar into a bowl. Add ¼ tsp fine table salt and mix well with a wooden spoon. Add the egg and mix again until the mixture forms a dough.
  • Break off some decent sized chunks of dough and place, well spaced apart, on the trays. Press the cookies down with the back of a fork (if you have one) to squash them a bit. The cookies can now be frozen for 2 months, cook from frozen adding an extra min or 2 to the cooking time.
  • Bake for 12 mins, until golden around the edges and paler in the centre. Cool on the trays for 10 mins, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely. Store in a cookie jar for up to 3 days.
