Peanut Butter Crinkles


*This is a melt-in-the-mouth shortbread textured biscuit (cookie), it is delicious!*

125g (4oz) butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon bi-carbonate soda (baking soda)
pinch salt

Preheat oven to 190ºC (375ºF).  Cream butter, vanilla, lemon rind, sugars and peanut butter.  With a wooden spoon work in sifted flour, soda and salt, making a stiff dough.  Roll heaped teaspoonfuls into small balls with floured hands and place on greased oen trays.  Press biscuits down lightly with a fork, first crosswise and then lengthwise, for a crinkled effect.  Bake in oven 15 minutes.  Cool biscuits on oven trays.

Thank you for posting this. I'm living in Tokyo now, and I wanted to make these for my peanut butter loving fiance! I hope they'll turn out as good as I remember them being when my mother used to make them. First I'll need to go on a hunt to buy brown sugar - not a standard ingredient in Japan!
