Sunday is baking day at our house

Sunday is baking day in our house, paul makes us treats it used to be muffins, now we have moved onto cookies after being loaned an american cookie book.
Our current favourites are white chocolate chip cookies & peanut butter cookies, this is not helping me with my wish to loose weight, but the smell of the cookies baking totally seduces me.

Peanut Butter & Reese's pieces cookies

In a medium bowl add and combine with a fork or wire whisk
350g Plain flour
2 teaspoons Bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon Bakng powder
200g Soft demerara sugar
225g Dark brown sugar

In a large bowl cream together & blend well
225g Soft butter
250g Smooth peanut butter
2 Large eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla essence

Gradually fold dry ingredients into butter mixture. Because the cookie dough is very stiff we find it easier to use a wooden spoon. Mix just long enough to combine all of the ingredients, dont over mix.
Add 1 small bag of reese's pieces
Using a tablespoon drop the cookie dough onto a baking sheet covered with a silicon non stick mat & flatten the dough with a fork.

bake in a pre heated oven Gas 5 / 190c / 375f

Bake for 8 - 10 minutes until golden brown. When cooked move to a wire cooling rack.
