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!

Muffins with rhubarbs and walnuts

At last this hear I grew some rhubarbs. And baked this muffins in June, but they appear on my blog only now. Sorry 🙂 These muffins are soft and I recommendto bake them in paper forms. I sprinkled some with cinnamon mixture, some didn’t. My hubby decided that with cinnamon is better. And I, cinnamon lover, can’t disagree with him 🙂

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 🙂

Chilled dough cookies with walnuts

I have no time to do nothing 🙂 My job is taking all my time. Good news that it will not last forever. So I have no time to bake cookies or pies, but it doesn’t stop me from wanting some sweets. And these cookies are perfect – you can form a log and then put in a freezer for later bake, when you will have no spare time.

Mini pie with pumpkin and prunes

These mini pies are very good way to use pumpkin or pumpkin puree. I and my hubby like them very much, but the kids do not. My mother asked to bake them because she wanted to take them to her work and that is the best proof to me that they taste great 🙂

Oat cookies with chocolate and puffed rice

After a long term there comes the cookies which my daughter liked very very much. Other cookies for her a too dry, she likes only the ones with dried friuts or nuts, or seeds. My son is a “white flour boy”, he can eat all cookies and these cookies were not different 🙂 . Puffed rice gives these crunchy cookies some softness. Chocolate like always gives for the cookies some charminess and while cookies are warm it is still melted and that’s the way my daughter likes 🙂
