Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Seed Cookies

It's been a while since I've made peanut butter cookies... But lately, I spotted a recipe by Dan Lepard on the Guardian. Every single one of his recipes is just a hit! These cookies have a wonderful gentle flavour. Peanut butter and pumpkin seeds are a surprisingly good combination! Peanut butter addicts, give this one a try! Seriously good stuff!

(from here)

175g peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
75g unsalted butter, melted
200g brown sugar
2 medium eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
100g pumpkin seeds, plus extra to finish
125g plain flour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

Preheat the oven to 180°C and line two baking trays with parchment paper.

Beat together the peanut butter, melted butter and sugar until smooth, add the eggs and vanilla, and beat again. Stir in the seeds, flour and soda until smooth. Line a tray with nonstick baking paper, spoon 30g blobs of dough on to it spaced 4-5cm apart, sprinkle with more pumpkin seeds and bake for 12-14 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
