You know those days when you do not feel like doing anything? Well, lately it was my thing. But since I had, and still have to, to write some paper works for Uni, I was more than that. I did not want to think about new recipes, to cook, to shot new pictures. Everything was too much for me, gosh....
So last night I needed a break, needed to break my bad routine. I just grab flour, butter, nuts and chocolate and baked Chip Cookies - talking about food for brain, yes?
So if you need to study or work very hard bake those before - they will work, I promise.
Nuts and Chocolate Chip Cookies*:
200 gram flour
120 gram sugar
100 gram cold butter
2 small eggs yolk
3-4 tablespoon of caster sugar
1/2 or even less teaspoon of salt
:40 gram of dark chocolate, nicely chopped
50 gram of mixed nuts, crashed
Preheat oven 180C/320F
In a bowl mix flour with sugar and add cutted into small pieces cold butter. Now using electric blender or your hand work with a cake mix - you don't want to heat it up too much so hurry up. You want to make something in a texture like big-pieces sand. After that add egg yolk, chopped nuts and chocolate. Make one dough and cool for 10 minutes. Now using either your hands or teaspoon make small balls, place them onto baking sheets and press them a little. Bake until golden a little.
Take big cup of latte or cocoa and eat them. Take a small break today.
*Those are not classic, chewy american-style chip cookies. Mine are more crisp but i like them that way.
