Instructions
 

  • Sift the dry ingredients flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda together; set aside in a bowl.
  • Take butter in another large mixing bowl.
  • Cream butter using an electric beater for 30 seconds.
  • Add both the sugars and beat on high speed for 1 or 2 minutes until the mixture turns light and fluffy.
  • Mix peanut butter and vanilla essence.
  • Stir until it is smooth.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix the whole mixture using a spatula. Do not knead the cookie dough like chapathi dough. This will make the cookies harder.
  • Refrigerate the dough for a while if the dough is not firm, otherwise you can directly bake the cookies. I always prefer to refrigerate the cookie dough for atleast 15 minutes so that it avoids the cookie from spreading more during baking.
  • Align baking tray with parchment / baking sheet.
  • Preheat oven at 160c.
  • Take small balls of around 1 inch diameter, even them and place them on the baking tray.
  • Leave enough space as the cookies will spread a little while baking.
  • Place the baking tray inside the preheated oven and bake for 13 to 15 minutes at 160c.
  • Once done remove the tray from the oven and gently press the chocolates in the center of the baked cookies when they are still hot.
  • Now the cookies may crack and spread a little. Do not put more pressure on the baked cookies as they may break.
  • Let these cookies rest on the baking tray itself for a minute or two.
  • Then transfer them on a cooling rack.
  • Once cooled, transfer the cookies into an airtight container and relish.

Notes

  1. Please follow the measurements as indicated.
  2. If Hershey’s kisses chocolates are unavailable, you can still bake them without the chocolates. It will be a yummy peanut butter cookie.
  3. The unsalted butter should be kept at room temperature. It has to be just softened enough, not melted.
  4. These cookies stay good for 15 to 20 days as well.
  5. Oven temperature and timings varies from one oven to another, hence adjust accordingly.
  6. This recipe yields 20 cookies of medium size.
