Recently I am into baking.Trust me itzz really interesting..This is my first attempt on cookies.I was excited to see the result.Searching for so many cookies recipe in the internet and at last i ended up in Peanut Butter cookies without flour, that was easy too.I always like to add my own touch to the recipe and like to experiment on it..Coming to the point PBC without flour ended with flour 😉 and that became a PBCC(Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie).I will tell u how.
|½ cup||Peanut butter(crunchy / smooth)|
|2 T||All purpose flour(maida)|
|½ T||Cocoa powder|
|½ tsp||Baking soda|
|½ tsp||Vanilla essence|
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F for about 10 minutes.Meanwhile u can finish up the preparation.
In a large bowl crack the egg,Add the sugar,Peanut butter,vanilla essence.Mix it together with a hand mixer.Until the sugar and peanut butter gets well into the egg .The end result will be like a paste.If u don't have a hand mixer use a whisk .Powder the sugar before adding and it should 1/2 cup.use ur index finger on the top of the cup to level the amount exactly.
Sieve the baking soda,All-Purpose flour,Cocoa powder.Add it to the bowl.Mix it together well with a spatula.The End of this step will result in a little bit sticky dough.This mixture will spread too much and will make the cookie flat.If u want to avoid this.Chill the dough for an hour and bake.But i skipped the process coz of experimenting.
Butter the tray to avoid sticking.Else use a parchment paper/foil.I din't have right in hand so i used butter for greasing the tray.
This mixture will yield 9 cookies.Dip ur hand in water to avoid sticking.Make 1 1/2 inch balls .Drop the balls on the greased plate 2 inch apart.Flatten each cookie with fork; dip fork in flour periodically to keep it from sticking to the peanut butter cookie dough.make a criss-cross pattern.If u want to fill anything like chocolate syrup/jam as per ur wish.Just press the thumb gently into the center of the cookies.I have filled the cookies with jam.
Bake 10-12minutes in preheated oven. Cool for 5 minutes.Now ur chewy Cookies are ready to eat.Store in an airtight container.
