  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C/Gas Mark 4. Combine the ingredients together until incorporated and smooth. Scoop (or roll 1-inch balls with hands) onto a Silpat lined or parchment baking sheet.
  • Using a fork, press down in order to form crisscross pattern on top.
  • Bake for 12 minutes. Remove and let cool on the tray for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling. Serve or store in an airtight container.



Note: For a less dense cookie, remove around 2 tablespoons from the peanut butter cup listed in the recipe.
