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!

Migdolinis tortas su maskarpone "Hello Kitty"

Almond cake with mascarpone “Hello Kitty”

I’m happy and proud. This cake is not just tasty but very cute 🙂 It was made for my daughter’s 5th birthday. But presenting it only now because somewhere at this time my blog is celebrating 3 year old birthday and at the same time I celebrated my birthday anniversary. But this year birthday was different – I didn’t do anything, just celebrated 🙂

Šokoladinis kremas

Chocolate spread

This spread I found accidentally. But the simplicity was intriguing and I gave a try. Even my hubby, who doesn’t like cocoa, agreed that it’s very good. So almost all last week at school my girl ate sandwiches with this cream and peanut butter. And today I had to prepare this spread again, because it was very good with a freshly baked bread for me too 🙂

Šokoladinis jogurtas

Chocolate yoghurt

Monday is a hard day, but anyway I want to share with you this dessert recipe. It’s so simple and quick. My all family enjoy it. But we all agreed that with milk chocolate it’s better, because dark chocolate gives some bitterness and yoghurt becomes unsweet for our tastes.

Ranger cookies

A few days ago I thought that I baked cookies very long time ago. And my mother mentioned that she liked the cookies that baked with chocolate. And I wanted oat cookies. So when I saw this recipe I decided to make them 🙂 Because my hubby don’t want to eat sweets, almost all cookies went to my work. And I have to say that I had no cookies to take home 🙂

Cherry cake with chocolate

I bookmarked this recipe long ago. And this week everyday after work I thought to bake it, but… This weekend I said “now or never” and I’m happy to say that it was “now”. I baked it from half portion and made a mistake. When my hubby tasted it he said “I my God, you’ll have to bake it again”. The little one was crying near the empty plate pleasing for more 🙁 Good to know that I still have some cherries in the freezer, so they won’t have to wait very long 🙂
