Christmas if over, New Year and it’s new goals are set. So we have just to wait for another great festival – St.Valentine day. But Christmas stil is something special – because we spend so much time thinking about our family and friend. And I think that to give is more important in that day then to get.
This year I got a small present from Ineta from Gamyklėlė blog. Thank you very much – it was really sweet 🙂
And now a little bit about cookies. I chose them because in the recipe it was written that they don’t spread. Yes, it’s correct. But I expected more crunchy, and they were soft. But they hole the form very well and are really delicious. I gave them as a present in my job. They disappeared in minutes 🙂 And I was asked for the recipes. So here it goes:
Chocolate butter cookies
Yields: 40 cookies
Calories: 60 kcal / cookie
1 cup = 237 ml
- 140 g butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla sugar
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/3 tsp. baking powder
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- Cream room temperature butter with sugar. Add eggs and vanilla sugar. Mix well.
- Add baking powder and salt and mix again. Stir in the cocoa. Add flour in a few steps. The dough should be soft.
- Rap dough in food film and put in a fridge to chill (there it should be from 1 hour till you will have time to bake cookies). If you don’t have time to wait – just add 1/4 cup of flour.
- Take dough out of the fridge. Roll out on lightly floured surface.
- Cut cookies with forms and place on a baking tray, lined with baking paper.
- Bake at 180°C for 6 1/2 minutes.
I still have apples and they are shouting that I have to make something from them before I have to throw them away. I chose this recipe because I had some vanilla sauce and in the recipe it was suggested to eat it with ice creams. Children like the cake even without the sauce.
If you still have zucchini, you should bake these muffins. They are moist as all baking with zucchini, but poppy seed gives some new flavour.
Very good snack. Kids came from the kinder-garden and ate only these sticks till none was left. I had to hide some for photo session. I baked them already two times. The first time I rolled sticks in sesame seeds, but the next day I had joy cleaning all house with vacuum-cleaner from the seeds 🙂 The next time I put sesame seeds inside the dough and it was more practical and the taste didn’t differ very much.
When I got some chanterelles, I decided to bake this year something new. And because I know how convenient to take non-sweet pies for lunch at work, I chose this recipe. Only in original recipe says to use more salt then I usually need, so I give here already corrected recipe.
Autumn is coming very fast, so in the morning I started to search for cozy warming food. These yeasted pancakes are one of that kind of food. These pancakes were my second contact with yeasts, maybe that’s why they associates with cozy food.
