British Peanut Butter Cookies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by myteddyslove

I found this on a vegan site - I was looking for a quick recipe for my nephew Rhys's birthday, in british measures, as I didn't have time to convert american ones! Its quick, easy and yummy!! Be careful when you remove the cookies from the tray as they are quite soft in the middle and can stick a bit.

Thank you this is easy and delicious. Changed it back to vegan. Tried less sugar but it doesn't spread in oven. Used Pure sunflower spread, unrefined sugar and wholewheat flour. Will use this often.
