Peanut Butter Cookie

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/ 356°F

  4. Divide dough in half and roll each half to 3mm in thickness between two sheets of parchment paper
  5. Onto one half equally space the portioned mochi balls (not all of them will fit, this step will be repeated)
  6. Carefully lay the other rolled out half of cookie dough ontop and smooth around the edges of each ball
  7. Using a round cookie cutter, cut around the mochi balls leaving a 0.5-1cm border
  8. Repeat the above steps until all the cookie dough and mochi has been used
