Brazil Nut Chocolate Chunk Cookies


I am such a cookie fanatic. I could probably eat cookies every single day. Although I don't. I actually hardly ever bake cookies. Sadly or fortunately. :)
So today I was not gonna bake anything, I am studying for my last final exam before graduating college. So fingers crossed for me!!
But I had had enough for today. I literally couldn't make sense of anything I tried to study. So I decided that's enough. I need a break. I need comfort. I need...comfort food? Yup. Cookies make me so happy. Baking cookies make me even happier. Thus I made some! Okay, a friend of mine told me she was making one of my cookie recipes and I immediately got the urge to make some, as well ;)
I didn't feel like waiting 24 hours for the dough to chill so I picked a recipe that looked pretty awesome, halved it since there's only 2 of us at home. And here you go. This cookie recipe is up to the point. Chewy, nutty, sweet, quick and easy! 
Perfect for one of those days when you feel like you're dying to eat a cookie and you want that cookie right now!

Chewy, see?

How sneaky of me to show off my doggies among the cookie pictures? :)

  2. My mum is a massive brazil nut fan, bordering obsessive when it comes to chocolate covered brazils so I just know these would be a huge winner with her! And they look pretty far up my street too :) Sometimes you just have to make cookies!

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…

Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Today I woke up and had the urge to bake something. At first, I was very VERY intrigued by a wonderful brownie recipe but then I came to my senses...that no, today is Wednesday! And brownies don't happen on Wednesdays around here. So I scolded myself for even thinking about it and swore that I will work out something vigorous instead :) But the scorching desire to bake something was still there! Ahhh! What to do now? I had a bag of unsalted roasted peanuts in the pantry so first let's make some peanut butter! That's healthy. And easy. Way too easy, I needed something more. So when I have peanut butter, let's make cookies with it!! Right??? Such a lovely idea!  I was looking through a couple PB cookie recipes and I originally wanted a no-flour kind but when I saw the amount of sugar each had... I was like no way am I gonna add 1 cup sugar to 1 cup PB. Let alone, I didn't even have 1 whole cup of PB.
