Peanut Butter Tim Tam Cookies

As every Australian knows, Tim Tams are the be-all and end-all of chocolate biscuits. Pair them with a coffee and you’ll be in some sort of taste bud dreamland. If you happen to live in a country where you are denied the pleasure of having your shelves stocked with these delicious delights, you can use any chocolate coated wafer biscuits as a substitute.

This recipe makes 24 cookies and is guaranteed to please anyone with a sweet tooth. Best eaten same day, but they’ll keep for a few days in an airtight container. I’ll be posting a DIY tutorial for the cute packaging next week, keep your eyes peeled!

  • ½ cup brown sugar
