Chocolate chip cookies with nuts and apricots

The first time I baked these cookies with my daugther. They were very delicious and very sweet. So next time I used less sugar, but they spread less while baking. Here I give you proportions with less sugar because I like when cookies are cookies and not candies 🙂 By the way, when I used hazelnuts my hubby said to leave them at home (didn’t let to take them to my work) 🙂 So it says everything about the taste of these cookies.

Chocolate chip cookies with nuts and apricots

Time needed:
Yields: 30 cookies
Calories: 98 kcal / 1 serving

Ingredients:
1 cup = 237 ml

  • 1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup (110 g) butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla sugar
  • 2/3 cup nuts (I suggest hazelnuts), coarsely chopped
  • 2/3 cup dried apricots, coarsely chopped (or other dried fruits)
  • 75 g chocolate, coarsely chopped

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 175°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt.
  • In another bowl mix butter, sugar and vanilla sugar until light and creamy. Beat in egg. Then gradually blend in the flour mixture.
  • Add in nuts, apricots and chocolate chips and stir until they are well-distributed in the batter.
  • Shape cookie dough into balls and arrange on prepared baking sheet, leaving about 5 cm between the cookies to allow for spread. Spress cookie balls with fingers to flatten.
  • Bake for 11-14 minutes, until cookies are light golden brown on the edges.
  • Allow to cool on baking sheet for 3-4 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!

Greitas Kalėdinis vaisinis pyragas ir kava

Quick Christmas fruit cake

This one was a little bit too sweet for me, but with unsweetened coffee it was great. You can substitute dried fruits with you favourites. For example I substituted some prunes with dried apricots and dates, also some of raisins substituted with dried cranberries. It’s really your choice and use all your dried fruit reserves.

Puffed rice with dried fruits

At first I was very sceptical about this recipe, because I thought that butterscotch and dried fruits won’t fit together. I was wrong and I am very happy about that 🙂 Dried fruits are perfect here, the dessert is not too sweet because of them.

Pork stew with dried prunes

For the quick lunch or in case you don’t want to spend a lot of time near the stove, this pork stew if just for you. While it’s stewing, you can take your time and prepare salads or some side dish. No matter how suspiciously we looked into dried fruit and meat combination, here it suits perfectly. This time as a side dish we had brown rice, so do not be surprised that they look like dirty, but after all, healthier 🙂

Puffed rice with Mars bars

I use less and less ingredients to do something sweet 🙂 Now I used only three ingredients. Next time I’ll try to use breakfast crisp balls. Mars bars is very good when you don’t want to waste time unfolding butter scotches. And it gives the taste between butterscotch and chocolate. But we likes this sweet a lot – disappeared in minutes.

Oatmeal with banana and nuts

This morning was cloudy so it was a good time to cook this oatmeal. My kids don”t like simple oatmeal (or I just think that I still didn”t learn to cook it tasty), so I decided to make a little bit sweet but still healty version. Banana gives mild sweetness and nuts adds some crunchy texture. In the original recipe walnuts are used, but we don”t like them so I changed them to hazelnuts. At the end my little one asked next time not to add nuts at all. So decide by yourself to use or not to use nuts in your oatmeal.
