Ingredients
===========

125gm crunchy peanut butter

1 egg

80gm sugar (castor or demerara, it doesn't really matter)

something else. A handful of raisins, hard fudge or chocolate squares.
   
Prep
====

Beat the sugar and egg together until creamy.

Mix with other ingredients until thoroughly combined.

Dollop cookie-sized lumps on baking paper on a tray, flatten out to 1/2" - 1/3" or so thick.

Cooking
======

Bake in 180C oven for 10-12min until past golden brown.
   
Remove from oven, allow to cool for a bit, then peel off baking paper and complete cooling on a tray.
   

The resulting cookies are very durable - they'll survive bumping in a saddlebag. Being mostly peanut butter with sugar and egg, they are very high in calories.

Best be quick - don't you know there's a war on World Peanut Shortage

They are so quick to make, I'm getting into the habit of throwing some in the oven whenever the oven is on.

Optional extras; black pepper and chilli powder.

They go very nicely with icecream.
