Peanut Butter Pillow Cookies
School hols... kids home.. i dont think i hv been this busy.. Hairi is done with school.. tmrw he's attending an interview with the co that hes been eyeing at.. err for a change it has nothing to do with being a flight attendant hehe.. for some reason after we took him to Europe he had the urge to see the world and what better position then to be a flight attendant.. he went thru the iterview.. experienced it and came home looking miserable.. awww poor boy.. its ok son.. do well in ur life and u will be able to see the world too OR get married to a rich old woman and u will get to see the world for free muahaha .. Ok ok.. enough... am proud of him cos at least he has the guts to attend the interview.. am 43 and i still hv no guts to do it lol.. i wish u all the best son since this is ur second interview with the same co..
Mom and dad came by yesterday and stayed for a while.. i quickly fried dad's fav beehoon tauchu and also managed to bake kuih bakar labu again but this time around i used the recipe that Nor used.. mom said this kuih bakar tastes much richer while hubs prefers the previous one.. funny enough i didnt eat as much.. maybe bec i baked it bec i had to slowly clear my fridge.. yep yep.. am clearing my fridge cos we will be heading up to KL again this wkend and this time around.. no guilty conscience hahaha.. Sonia is on school term break and we will be in KL for a week... hubs is attending the big oil & gas conference that is being held there next week... bet all hotels are gonna be fully booked!
Tomorrow if time permits.. i plan to bake mac shells for my KL orders.. afterall wednesday is macs day hehe.. so ok lets talk abt this cookie... i dont know how many times i wanted to bake it.. each time i took out my peanut butter jar fm my fridge i ended up putting it back in my fridge.. i know this type of cookie will take up alot of my time compared to drop cookies... anyway.. so yeahhh.. i managed to bake it after i put Sonia to bed... it wasnt as time consuming as i thought it would be... baked it using the temp and the time that was recommended.. first tray came out a little dark.. arghhhh... second tray went in and this time around i changed the temp to 120C and only baked it for a total of 25mins... it came out perfect... the taste of peanut butter is alot more prominent and the best part... the cookies wasnt as krap krup as the first tray and the texture of these cookies are like pineapple tarts... I love it! perfect for the upcoming Eid.. perfect for munchies!
150g unsalted butter - coolish
(I didnt use margarine - 250g unsalted butter)
100g icing sugar
100g peanut butter
1 egg yolk
350g cake flour - i used 400g
1/2 tsp milk powder
115g unsalted butter - coolish
15g cocoa powder - cocoa berry
15g milk powder
60g icing sugar
1/4tsp chocolate paste
2 egg yolk
1/8 tsp honey
1tsp single cream
Beat butter, peanut butter, salt and sifted icing sugar in a small bowl with eletric mixer until smooth. Beat in egg yolk until combined. Stir in sifted flours in tow batches. Cover dough, refrigerate for 30 mins.
Meanwhile make the fillings. Combine all ingredients.. wrap in clingwrap and place it in fridge to harden a little.. take it out and roll ur fillings to look like a long rope - set aside
Roll dough between sheets of baking paper to 30x40cm rectangle, cut into four 7.5cm(3")X40CM(16") strips. Place fillings on the centre of each strip. Fold edges in until they meet to enclose filling, turn seam side down onto board. Cut each roll into pillows shapes, place pillows, seam side down, on trays.
Bake it on a preheated oven of 140C using bottom fire for 25mins.. take it out and brush top with glazing and continue to bake it again for a further 15mins - cool on trays.
