What are you making?
We’ll be making Whippernutter cookies – in other words, peanut butter cookies with gooey pools of Vanilla marshmallow Whip! Mmm…
What do I need?
1 jar Mallow & Marsh Vanilla Whip (feel free to substitute with another flavour if you prefer!)
215g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp flaky sea salt
113g unsalted butter, at room temperature
99g granulated sugar + 198g for rolling
99g firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup (115g) creamy peanut butter
1tsp vanilla extract
(Click here for the method in case you miss a step!)
What equipment do I need?
2 baking trays lined with baking paper
2 large bowls
Where can I buy Vanilla Whip from?
You can find our Vanilla Whip on our online shop, Amazon, Borough Box, Mighty Small, Whole Foods & The Skinny Food Co or pick up a jar of our Salted Caramel & Raspberry flavour from Sainsbury’s!
What do I need to prepare:
Make sure you’ve taken your butter out the fridge one hour beforehand to bring it to room temperature.
Prepare and weigh out all your ingredients, and cut your baking parchment to fit your trays, at least 30mins before we go live!
What if I can’t get a jar in time for tomorrow?
No problem – you can still follow the recipe and exclude the Whip if you want to take part!
