Peanut Butter Cookies

Odd colour on photo - oops
Cooler weather is here, the leaves on the Horse Chestnut tree outside have a hint of red and as usual at this time of year I am struck by the need to bake something. This morning we made these easy peanut butter cookies, a real milestone as my youngest Daughter at 18 months was finally able to fully to join in. 
'Twice the mess, twice the fun on mornings like this I love being a Mum'.

8 tbsp plain flour
2 tbsp caster sugar
2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
1 free-range egg yolk
50g/1¾oz butter, softened
Icing sugar, for dusting

Preheat the oven to 180C.
Place the flour, sugar, peanut butter, egg yolk and butter into a large bowl and mix together until combined to a smooth dough.
I added a bit of water to bind it together although the recipe didn’t ask for it. With lightly floured hands, break off evenly sized pieces of the dough and roll into walnut sized balls.
Place the dough balls onto a baking sheet lined with silicon paper or baking parchment and gently press each ball with the back of a fork to flatten slightly.
Place in the oven and bake for ten minutes, or until just turning golden-brown.
Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and allow to cool for ten minutes. These are nicer when cool.
Optionally to serve, place on a serving plate and dust with icing sugar.
