Don’t know what to make with peanut butter?

If you have a jar of peanut butter in the fridge that you don’t know what to do with, then try these biscuits. They are the old-fashioned sort, crunchy rather than the chewy style of cookies. Two bites, and they’re gone. I guess it will work with cashew butter too… we have a jar of that in the fridge too. mouthfulMakes 24 small biscuits
150g peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
100g light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
1 whole medium egg
