All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 ¼ cup / 150 grams
Sugar - ½ cup / 100 grams
Brown Sugar / Jaggery - ½ cup / 90 grams
Unsalted Soft Butter - ½ cup / 1 stick
Peanut Butter - ½ cup ( I used crunchy peanut butter)
Egg - 1
Baking Powder - ½ tsp
Baking Soda / Cooking Soda - ¾ tsp
Salt - ½ tsp
(My 1 cup measures 240 ml)
Preheat oven to 190 degree C or 375 degree F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Take soft butter in a bowl and cream it well. Add in both the sugar and cream till fluffy.
Add in egg and peanut butter and cream again.
Now add in the flour mix and mix really well.
Put the bowl in fridge for 2 to 3 hours or in freezer for an hour.
Now take it out and take a small portion of dough, roll it into smooth ball.
Arrange it in the tray and use a fork to make criss cross pattern.
Now bake this for 9 to 15 mins depending on the size of cookies you make. I used around 2 tblspn of dough and baked it for around 12 to 13 mins.
Now remove it and cool it down for 5 mins. Now remove it to a wire rack and cool completely.
Store in a air tight container and enjoy with some milk.
