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!

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 🙂

Beetroot, cashew and feta salads

Don’t know why but this autumn I’m hooked on beetroots. Every weekend I boil some beetroots and through the week I incorporate them in our dishes. And then story repeats. When I wanted for dinner something light, I prepared these salads. By the way, this recipe in the book is called carpaccio, but I think it’s more salads, and the name is more usual and not so fancy 🙂 . Family girls enjoy them, the big boy ate them and just said that more balsamic vinegar would be better, and the little boy as always, prepared some theater and then ate them, just without enjoyment. So I remember these salads as they are fit for girls 🙂 And I prepared very similar salads with hazelnuts, and they were very good too. So as always – don’t be afraid to experiment and correct ingredients by your refrigerator or cupboard products.

Swirl Pumpkin Brownies

Yes, I still have pumpkin puree 🙂 And this time it’s not so healthy but very chocolate brownie. It’s really easy, just I baked 10 minutes more. The next time, I will bake only 5 minutes more. And also, when I baked it second time I used less sugar, and my big girl tasted that. My hubby also agreed that brownie second time was not so good as the first time. So the third time I won’t change anything – these proportions are really perfect!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

These muffins are really good, because they are very moist, not very sweet and of course – they are with chocolate! My kids just love them and at one time ate almost everything (my hubby helped them a little bit 🙂 ). So we agreed that we will repeat very soon.

Pumpkin blondies with chocolate and pecans

It was the first time when cake dissapeared so quickly. And even more – almost everyone asked for the recipe. 🙂 I was really pleased. So I write down here the recipe without a queue (in the queue there are five more recipes).
