Peanut Butter Crinkles - Biscuits

Two of my gorgeous followers Sarah from Shabby Chic Sarah and Little Blue Mouse
asked if I would share the recipe for Peanut Butter Crinkles which I made for my  Vintage Tea Party.
I'm very happy to share the recipe and here it is.


125g (4oz) butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind *
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1/3 cup peanut butter **
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
pinch of salt

1.  Cream butter, vanilla, lemon rind, sugars and peanut butter.
2.  With a wooden spoon work in sifted flour, soda and salt, making a stiff dough.
3.  Roll heaped teaspoonfuls into small balls with floured hands and place on greased oven trays or trays lined with baking paper.  ***
4.  Press biscuits down lightly with a fork, first crosswise and then lengthwise, for a crinkled effect.
5.  Bake in moderate oven for 15 minutes.  Cool biscuits on oven trays.
Makes about 25, but I always manage to get a few extra.

*  The addition of lemon rind isn't necessary but if you have a lemon on hand, it adds a little something extra to these yummy biscuits.
**  Any peanut butter will do, but I use chunky 'cos that's what is in the pantry.
***  I don't usually flour my hands, the mixture doesn't seem to be  too sticky.

Here is a photo to remind you just how good these biscuits look.
