Date and Peanut Cookies

image

Sometimes the boys have “gone off” dried fruit and any sign or a raisin, date or sultana has caused protest.

This is a sneaky way of getting  the dried fruit in with no one knowing! I have used raisins, sultanas, dates and apricots in this recipe, all work well.

These are very quick to make in a food processor.

This recipe makes around 30 cookies.

Ingredients

100g dates, chopped

100g peanut butter

100g butter

100g caster sugar

100g brown sugar

1 egg

220g self raising flour

Method

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Centigrade.

Line two baking sheets and set aside.

Measure out dates, peanut butter, butter, sugars and egg.

Pour into food processor, process to mix well and chop dates finely.

Add flour and mix to a dough.

Roll into walnut sized balls, place on the baking sheet and flatten slightly with a fork.

Bake for 20-25mins.

Cool for five minutes on the trays and then cool completely on a wire rack.

Store in an air tight container.
