It's okay. I may not be able to prove myself in an essay on gender differences in mathematics but I can make cookies and they're damn good cookies. I had made some pumpkin seed butter, because remember how I make and sell them (check the tabs above)? Well, I'm going through a clearance sale and I'm getting rid of all these nut butters - and so I decided to make cookies with them. And look, naturally green - should've made these prior to St Patrick's day. It's okay, next time.
Recipe adapted from here
225g plain flour
75g natural pumpkin seed butter
150g unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
Beat the butter with the pumpkin seed butter with electric beaters until smooth and creamy. Beat in the sugar and vanilla extract until fluffy - about 5 minutes.
In another bowl, mix the flour with the salt and stir it in the butter mixture. until a dough forms. Use your hands to form it into flat disc, wrap in cling film and leave it to chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180C. Roll the disk out to about 1cm thick and cut out desired shapes. Then with the rest, form it into a dough, roll and repeat. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned at the edges. Leave to cool before consuming.
