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 to 4 table spoons (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 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 table spoons of milk, if it binds and holds a shape well and good. Otherwise add one more table spoon of milk and make a ball like Chapati dough.
-Now pre-heat 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 Table spoon 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 colour.
-While 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.
-Base of this chocolate will melt a little, so it holds firmly after it cools down. Cookie will crack around the edges.
-Now don’t disturb these beauties and allow them to cool completely. It will take anywhere between 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.
