Serves: 18 cookies

Ingredients
  • 120g butter
  • 250g crunchy peanut butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1½ cups flour
  • ⅓ tsp baking powder
  • 1 x 230g M&M baking bits/mini M&Ms

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream the peanut butter, butter and sugars.
  3. Add egg and beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Blend flour and baking powder mix into creamed mixture until just combined.
  5. Stir in M&Ms.
  6. Spoon tablespoonfuls of mixture onto a baking tray lined with baking paper (leave about 5 cm between each cookie)
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden

For a Christmas twist, hunt down the red and green M&Ms available in supermarkets during December and use them instead. Festive and delicious!

  • And how long do they keep? Fridge or bench? MWA!

    • I always keep them in a tupperware container on the bench. Exactly how long they can keep fresh is a tricky question, as whenever I make them they are demolished within a day or two! But due to the high fat content from our friends butter and peanut butter, they should keep fresh for at least a week :)
