Peanut Butter Biscuits

Really simple cupboard staple biscuits. They're melt in the mouth but also will hold together enough to dip in your coffee or tea. 
Makes about 18
100g unsalted butter
100g Crunchy peanut butter (I use Mani life, it's 100% nuts) 
90g caster sugar
1 egg
170g plain flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
50g peanuts (finely chopped)

You will also need 2 lined baking trays.

Cream together the peanut butter, butter, sugar and vanilla together in the bowl of a food processor (or freestanding mixer, or by hand) until light and fluffy. Add the egg, pulse until well combined.

Add the flour and pulse until it comes together to form a ball. 

Tip the mixture out onto a sheet of baking parchment, mix in the chopped peanuts. Roll into a cylinder and wrap in the parchment.  

Chill until firm, for a minimum of 60 minutes. Cut into thickish disc's, place onto the lined baking sheets, use a fork to make a criss cross effect on the tops. 

Preheat the oven to 170ºC/325ºF/gas mark 3.

Bake the biscuits on the middle shelf of the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. Leave to cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. 
*The dough freezes beautifully
*If you use sweetened PNB you may want to lower the sugar by 15g
