Peanut Butter Cookies with Sprinkles

Ever had peanut butter cookies with sprinkles? The rich peanut buttery taste in every bite is hard to ignore and is a treat everyone loves . If you are a peanut butter cookies lover, then I am sure you would love this recipe.

The ingredients for this cookies are pretty basic and I think I can safely say that this recipe is pretty much a classic peanut butter cookies recipe except that I have added a little fun twist to them by adding bright colorful sprinkles into the batter. 

And these sprinkles don't just add color to the cookies, they also add more texture to these peanut butter treats. As you bite and chew the soft cookies, you would feel the little crackling sound of the sprinkles, giving the cookies nice little surprises with each bite. 

I used smooth peanut butter in the recipe, but if you like a bit more crunch in your cookies, you can always use the chuncky peanut butter instead.

40g peanut butter

50g butter

50g caster sugar

25g brown sugar

100g self raising flour

  • Pre heat oven to 175 degrees Celcius.
  • Prepare 2 baking trays lined with parchment paper.

  • Rest the dough for about 5 minutes so that it comes together.
  • To bake the cookies, take about 1 tbsp of dough and shape into round balls. Place the balls onto a lined baking tray. Repeat the process bearing in mind not to place the cookies to close to another as they will spread during baking (since the recipe uses self raising flour).

  • Bake the cookies for about 9 minutes at 175 degrees Celsius. At this temperate and cooking time, you will get peanut butter cookies that are slightly crispy on the edges and soft in the centre. For crunchy peanut butter cookies (crunchy inside and out, bake the cookies for an extra 2 minutes). 
  • To cool the cookies, lift the parchment paper off the baking tray and place it on a wire rack. Let the cookies cool completely before removing them from the paper. The cookies tend to stick to the paper when they are still warm. 
  • This recipe makes about 25 cookies.
