Step 1 - Add all cookie ingredients into the bowl and put on speed 6 for 10-15 seconds, scrape down the sides and then knead function for 30 seconds.

Step 2 - Divide the dough in two. Flour two sheets of parchment and roll out one half of the dough and cut out rounds using a 4cm/1.6inch round cutter. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, 60 minutes if you have the time. Then bake for 23-25 minutes until pale golden. Cool completely.

Step 3 - Place icing sugar in bowl and process on speed 6 for 10 seconds and then add the peanut butter and salt and process for 15 seconds on speed 5.

Step 4 - Pinch off small balls, around the size of a fat grape and flatten gently between your fingers or in your palm. Place on the shortbread and repeat until all cookies are covered with peanut butter.

Step 5 - Melt the chocolate at 50C speed 2 for 4-5 minutes and stir in coconut oil. Dip the cookies in the chocolate and using two forks lift the choc dipped cookie out. I leave it for a few seconds to allow the excess chocolate to drip off before placing back on the parchment to set. Set in the fridge for 20 minutes.
