150g softened butter (I used between 100 – 150 so that they were less buttery)

1 cup white sugar ( I went with slightly under a cup so that they weren’t too sweet)

1 egg

2 1/2 cups self-raising flour (see below for flour substitute)

400g ( 1 large packet) Peanut Butter Chips (I used Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips, but chocolate chips or M&Ms may also be used)

*** Makes approx 15 – 20 cookies ***

**** Flour – Self-raising flour substitute. I didn’t have any self-raising flour, so I added 2 teaspoons of baking powder to each cup of flour used ****


1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line 3 baking trays with baking paper.

2. In a large glass/metal mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.

3. Add egg and stir until runny.

4. Add self-raising flour and mix with your hands (If mixture is too wet, add a tablespoon of flour and mix until soft dough forms).

5. Using a tablespoon, scoop dough and roll, place on baking trays.

6. Cookies can be gently pressed down to flatten slightly.

7. Press 5+ peanut butter chips into each cookie.

8. Bake for 10 – 15 mins or until golden brown. You can rotate trays at the 5 – 6 minute mark for even baking.

9. Remove from oven and leave for 5 minutes to harden.

10. Transfer to cooling rack and cool for 5 minutes.

Keeps for 1 week in an airtight container once baked. Unbaked dough can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
