Peanut Butter and Sesame Cookies

The perfect peanut butter cookie recipe.


  • 125 g butter, softened
  • 85 g caster sugar
  • 80 g demerara sugar
  • 125 g smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 200 g plain flour
  • 1 tsp bread soda
  • 50 g sesame seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.
  2. Cream the butter and both sugars together in a bowl until soft and fluffy. Add the peanut butter and vanilla and mix well.
  3. Sieve the flour and bread soda together in a bowl, then add to the peanut butter mixture. Combine well but don’t overbeat.
  4. Roll teaspoons of the dough into balls. Roll the balls in the sesame seeds and place on the lined baking tray. Flatten slightly.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes (or 7 minutes for tiny cookies), until golden brown. Leave to cool slightly on the tray, then transfer to a rack.



Lilly's tips: 

Drizzle melted chocolate over them once cooled.

Sandwich together with jam for peanut butter/jelly combo!
