i´m so sorry for my absence these days but uni started again and i was busy running around like a maniac ;)
so today i´ll give you my pear-cookie recipe :) i made these yesterday for my sisters birthday brunch .
So, first of all, what you need:
115g butter, softened
180g sugar (brown or white...just how you like it)
5ml vanilla extract (also working: almond, rum...hmm...whatever you like might work ;)
7g baking powder
half teaspoon ground cinnamon (you can use more ginger and cinnamon if you like it)
half teaspoon ground ginger
1 pear - peeled, cored and diced
70g raisins (cranberries work also)
60g chopped walnuts (i used hazelnuts this time...also great)
and now what to do with this stuff ;)
first you combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and ginger. (i always use a little baking soda, too)
then mix raisins and the nuts.
pear chopping ;) and adding to the nuts/raisins
beat butter and sugar until really smooth and then add the egg and the extract.
now add the flour...
and then the pear/nut/raisins
now put onto a baking sheet a little apart from each other rounded tablespoonfuls of the dough and bake ca.15 minutes at 175°C but dont let them get too dark ;)
i hope you can soon enjoy some cookies very soon ;) and one more add, with the spices, extracs and so on you can be creative. i also added a little rosemary...you can do what your taste wants ;)
have fun and see you soon my little fairy-cupcakes :)
