Amira's Peanut Biscuits
I enjoy the taste of peanuts and especially as a sweet as the slight saltiness of the peanuts keeps these biscuits from being too sweet. These biscuits are crunchy, just as I like them, especially nice for dipping in your cuppa.
½ cup lite crunchy peanut butter
¾ cup white sugar
2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
Preheat oven at 180oC (170oC fan-forced). Line 2 biscuit trays with baking paper. Cream peanut butter, margarine and sugar until creamy. Add lightly beaten egg and beat again. Add flour and bicarb of soda and lightly beat with K-beater of "Kenwood" electric mixture until mixture comes together. Form 23g of mixture into a ball and lightly press to flatten. Place on prepared trays 3cm apart, press top lightly with a fork.
Bake in preheated oven for approximately 18 mins or until brown as desired.
Makes about 28 biscuits.
