I Wanna Marry You Cookies - my version

I'm in an everlasting battle of craving cookies and wanting skinnier hips. 
While on weekdays the skinny hips do sound much much better, on the lazy weekends when all I do is chill out, cookies just win. Even though, I try to contain myself so I don't eat the entire batch in one sitting, I am still a cookie fanatic.
And as a fanatic, I am incredibly picky when it comes to my cookies! I mean, if you're already giving in the temptation and the desire to have smaller thighs, then at least sin with something that's worth sinning!
Am I right or am I right? ;)

So when I want to eat the little sugar bombs, I have specific expectations. First of all, I want my cookies to be crunchy. I want crumbles when I bite into one, I want the exciting texture that makes crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside cookies. I want toasted walnuts, I want the richness that the chocolate chunks add, I want a bit saltiness and most of all, I want that after I finish it, I feel absolute contentness.

And that is exactly what this recipe gives you. I altered the original recipe a bit, as I added a bit less butter, I also browned it for an even richer taste, less sugar, more salt and voila; awesome cookies!!

They got a bit darker in color but that's due to my horrible impatience. I just couldn't wait for the butter to cool down and I mixed in the warm butter with all the other ingredients and thus the chocolate melted a bit. Oh well! But if you like paler ones, just be patient and wait until the butter completely cools down or if you want even better texture, just put it in the fridge and wait until it solidifies again.
Hope you'll love them as much as we do!

I Wanna Marry You Cookies
adapted from Cooking channel

200 grams butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
2 + 1/4 cups bread flour
1 cup oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup chocolate chunks
3/4 cup toasted halved walnuts

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. When it's completely melted, just keep the heat on, it will bubble up but just keep on cooking it over low-medium heat. It will have a foam on top but don't worry just keep stirring and cooking. When the foam starts to evaporate, pay attention because from here, the butter browns quickly and can burn if you leave it on too long. So when you see brown specks at the bottom of the pan, then it's ready.

Cool the butter down, you can also place it in the fridge after it cooled so it becomes solid again.

After it's cool or solid, add in the sugars. Then the egg and the egg yolk.

In a different bowl, mix the flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon together. 
Incorporate the dry ingredients to the butter mixture.

Add in the chocolates and the walnuts. Form small balls with your hands and place them on a baking sheet, leaving some space for them to grow as they bake. 
Bake them for 13 minutes on 175C.

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…
