Proper Nutty Peanut Butter


Peanut Butter Jammy Dodgers

A Proper Nutty twist on a family favourite! You could even sandwich these biscuits together with jam AND peanut butter if you want them even more nutty!

Method

  1. Cream together the sugar and butter until light & fluffy.
  2. Beat in the peanut butter, vanilla extract and egg.
  3. Add the flour and mix until combined into a dough. Knead gently.
  4. Wrap dough in clingfilm and refrigerate for 20 mins.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 3-4mm (thickness of £1 coin).
  6. Cut out biscuits using a 6cm cutter and cut out a shape or hole from the centre of half of these biscuits using a smaller cutter.
  7. Carefully place the biscuits onto baking trays lined with baking paper and bake at 180ºC (160ºC fan) for 8-12 mins until very pale golden.
  8. Leave on baking trays to firm up for 5 mins before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
  9. To assemble, put a teaspoon of jam onto the top of a whole biscuit and then top with a cut-out biscuit and press together lightly.
  10. Keep the unfilled biscuits in an airtight container, they are best if you assemble them just before serving.
