Sesame Peanut Butter Cookies (2015 CNY cookie #2)

When I saw this recipe posted by Cheah Sokehah of No-Frills Recipes , I immediately bookmarked it ... I like peanut cookies but too hassle for me to make ground peanuts.  Since I've got all the ingredients ... Yes ! GO ! GO ! GO bake it ! (actually I was quite tired after I've done the usual weekend household chores .... still, couldn't resist the temptation (^○^) because that tub of creamy peanut butter "kept staring (○▪○) at me" hee ... hee.. !)

My boy claimed "Oh ! It tasted like Subway's peanut butter cookie ! Chewy soft ... Make bigger, make more !"
My girl said "Nice!"


Recipe adapted from No Frills Recipes
Sesame Peanut Butter Cookies
Yield : about 55 - 58 cookies

113g unsalted butter (softened at room temperature)
60g brown sugar
60g caster sugar
113g creamy or chunky peanut butter
1 egg
140g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
a pinch of salt
2 teaspoons white sesame seeds, lightly toasted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1) Sift flour with baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt.  Set aside.

2) In an electric mixer, cream butter with the brown and caster sugar till creamy.
Add in the peanut butter, followed by the egg and vanilla.

3) Fold in the sifted flour and sesame seeds, mix till just combined.
Cover with cling wrap and let rest in the fridge for 2  hours.

4) Roll out into 1.1/4 inch balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet, about 1.1/2 inches apart.

Do space them widely apart as the dough will spread while baking in oven.
5) Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 degree C for about 10 to 12 mins.  Let cool for a while before removing them onto a wire rack to cool completely.  Store in an airtight cookie jar.

Indeed, I like the peanut fragrant and the chewy soft texture. Yeah ! Add to my CNY homemade cookies list ^-^!

Happy baking for CNY !
