Peanut butter cookies originated from the USA in the early 20th century. A delicious flavour and texture with whole peanuts added in for an extra surprise when you bite into them.

Cream or process peanut butter, sugar and butter in the food processor.

Add the egg and the flour to the peanuts and process until you get a dough ball

Make the dough into balls the size of cherry tomatoes. Add a peanut to the inside of each one and then depress each in the middle with your thumb
