Snickerdoodles


I am happily announcing that I have completed one week from the Insanity workout program!! Yay!! :) Sooo.... Since I was able to lose a couple of cms from all over my body in just ONE week, I decided to keep with it! It means, no sugar for me. Still. Actually, I don't even crave it. That much. :) But I can't abandon my blog so I will post a few older recipes that just never made it up here. But now! 

About these cookies. I am not a big fan of snickerdoodles. When it comes to choosing what type of cookies to make. My first and possibly only choice would be choc. chip cookies. DUH. Then all variations to choc. chip cookies. Then... that's all because I do not wanna eat any other kinds of cookies. But when I had some leftover cinnamon-sugar from this doughnut recipe I decided to give snickerdoodles a try. It would be mere exaggerating to say I came to find a new favorite but I did really like them! Especially warm. I was mesmerized that this cookie is not that snickerdoodle cookie I've tried before! These ones are a little spiced up with chinese five spice powder which were the perfect addition to the cookies! All I can say is yum!

Snickerdoodles

170 grams brown sugar
112 grams butter
1 egg
170 grams flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons 5 spice powder
40 grams sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon

Beat the sugar with the butter until creamy. Add in the egg and keep mixing. In another bowl mix the dry ingredients and add it to the sugary butter cream. Shape dough into medium sized balls. Mix the 40 grams of sugar with the cinnamon and roll the cookie dough balls into it. Bake them for 8-10 minutes on 200C.

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Coconut-Almond Butter stuffed Chocolate Cups

I wasn't gonna make a dessert today. Let alone something chocolatey. No no no! I wanted to have a dessert-free week. And look, I made chocolate cups! How did this happen??  Anyways... These cups are amazing. Seriously, finger-licking good. Not exaggerating. You need to make this!! I used to go crazy for Reese's but after a while I got so fed up with the excessive sweetness. Yeah, I find Reese's way too sweet and too dense. That's why I fell in love with these cups. These are not overly sweet, yet really rich and the salt on top  takes it to the next level. I am in love. Although I did eat only a half of it. But I'm thinking hard to eat another half :) I might as well just do it. What's the harm? 1 pound on my hips? Oh well! :P
So it all started with me buying a bag of almonds. To make almond butter. Then I wanted something extra so I started making coconut butter first and I kinda added more coconut than almonds... It's like raffaello butter. Utterly deliciou…
