Wanted to use Hershey’s “Kisses” in baking from so many days, finally, I did try out this and my kids liked it too. These are a real treat for kids and at the same time filled with high fiber and are healthy because of the usage of Whole wheat flour and oats. I like lemon flavor in my cookies if you don’t want to use lemon you can add vanilla or cardamom too.
Now we will see how I made this.
Whole wheat flour -1 cup
Powdered oats – 1 cup
Sugar -1 cup
Baking soda -1 tsp.
Grated lemon zest- ½ to 1 tsp.
Ghee /Clarified butter – ½ cup
Milk – 3 table sp to 4 tbl sp (to bind)
Hershey’s Kisses chocolates for decoration.
-In a mixer jar, powder oats, measure and keep aside.
-powder sugar and keep aside.
-Now take one mixing bowl, take all the dry ingredients like whole wheat flour, oats powder, sugar powder, baking soda, lemon rind and mix it thoroughly by using the hand, so that flavor will spread uniformly.
-Now mix in melted ghee and bind it together. If it is a little dry, add one to two tablespoons of milk, if it binds and holds a shape well and good. Otherwise, add one more tablespoon of milk and make a ball like Chapati dough.
-Now preheat your oven in 180C.
-Line your cookie tray with butter paper or aluminum foil and keep it ready.
-Take one small cookie scoop or a Tablespoon to shape the dough into semi-circle balls, and place them on a parchment covered baking/cookie tray.
-Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until base becomes light brown in color.
-While the baking process is going on, keep kisses chocolate ready by removing its cover.
When it is done, take out the tray and immediately press a chocolate into the center of each cookie.
The base of this chocolate will melt a little , so it hold firmly after it cools down. The cookie will crack around the edges.
Now don’t disturb these beauties and allow them to cool completely. It will take anywhere from one to two hours to cool completely. Because of the heat, chocolate will become very soft and after some time, it will hold its shape and become firm. Then you can store this in an airtight container.
