Just recently my beautiful and very talented grandmother passed down some incredibly simple and sublime recipes to me. I’ve been eager to start baking ever since and today I finally got the chance to put one her recipes to the test. Which one you ask? That’s right the old fashioned peanut biscuit. I remember munching on her delicious peanut bikkies when I was just a little girl and they have always been a knockout! How could you go wrong? But today I decided to put my own little, creative and modern twist to the classic. So sweet toothes get ready for some peanuty, chocolatey, honeycomb, crunchy goodness!
Start by preheating your oven to 160 degrees (fan forced). Line baking trays with baking paper and we’re ready to begin.
Cream the butter and sugar with an electric beater, then add the egg, vanilla essence, peanuts and SR flour.
Now for the fun part! My not so traditional but super scrumptious addition of the God of spreads: Peanut butter. Mix it all together and you’ve got yourself heaven in a bowl!
This next step is crucial and very dear to my heart…licking the beaters!!!
Here’s the twist. Well, it starts and ends with a block of cadbury dairy milk with honeycomb chocolate. Simply melt the chocolate in a saucepan and swirl it in with the rest of the mixture.
So now the mixture is all good to go.Time to get your hands dirty and roll some perfectly shaped cookie balls. Place the balls on the baking tray at a good length apart (to allow the cookies to spread) and now all that’s left to do is wait… 25 minutes and they should come out golden and delicious 🙂
Ingredients (makes 25):
- 113g butter
- 1/2 cup of caster sugar
- 100g roasted peanuts (halved)
- 1 egg
- 1.5 tbsps of vanilla essence
- 1.5 cups of self raising flour
- 1/2 block of cadbuary dairy milk with honeycomb
And that’s all there is to it. If your more of a classic peanut bikker feel free to make the recipe without the choc or you can mix it up with your own little touches… I hope you enjoyed our first post 🙂
