It’s Cookie Time!…Today we are baking Peanut Brownie Cookies…

Today Lily and I are baking cookies …the recipe was given to me by the lovely Ally from Ally’s Notebook Blog head over and check out Ally’s Pizza’s they look and sound so delicious…I’m sure these cookies will be the same…Thank you for the recipe Ally it is one of her mum’s recipes which means it must be good…The the end of the post…


  • 125 gm softened Butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • A pinch of Salt
  • 1 1/2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Cup of peanuts roasted

Let’s Bake!

The original recipe used nuts in their shells roasted I just had raw nuts already shelled which I roasted in a pre-heated oven to 350º F. Then place peanuts in a single layer in a baking pan. Place in the oven and roast for 15 to 20 minutes, until nuts just begin to turn brown. …remember that peanuts get very hot and continue cooking after being removed from the oven…Set to one side.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely…If you are cooking in their shells they will take slightly longer about 25-30 minutes.

Now to make the cookies…

Cream the softened butter well then add the beaten egg and stir well. Sift in the flour, cocoa, baking powder and add salt stir well to combine.

Gently fold in the cold peanuts.

Roll a tbsp of the mixture into balls and flatten with a floured fork…

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 150C/302F for 25-30 mins.

Makes about 25-30 cookies.

The Verdict:

Very nice oven runs hot so the cookies took between 20-25 minutes as size-wise Lily was a little is learning bless her but she has done well…I roasted the peanuts and Lily did the rest…The mixture was easy to roll into a ball not too sticky…we didn’t quite make 30 as some were a little big…lol ..but they were lovely biscuits…Thanks to Ally’s mum xx

See you tomorrow for Saturday Snippets…
