Quote

"I love people. Everybody. I love them, I think, as a stamp collector loves his collection. Every story, every incident, every bit of conversation is raw material for me. My love's not impersonal yet not wholly subjective either. I would like to be everyone, a cripple, a dying man, a whore, and then come back to write about my thoughts, my emotions, as that person. But I am not omniscient. I have to live my life, and it is the only one I'll ever have. And you cannot regard your own life with objective curiosity all the time..."

— Sylvia Plath (The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath)

What I baked on Sunday

Hey Sweets,

sundays are my baking days :) mostly due to time issues ;)
so I thought I share a recipe with you every now and then...and the first one will be *tadadadaaa*

Chai-Banana-Cookies



you´ll need:
1x 25g instant Chai latte sachet
1 tablespoon boiling water
125g butter, softened
3/4 cup (165g) sugar (either brown or white)
1/2 mashed banana
1 1/2 cups (225g) plain flour
1/4 cup (35g) self-raising flour


1. you have to blend the content of the sachet with the boiling water... and mash the banana (I use a fork)

2. beat butter, sugar, banana and the chai-paste with electric mixer until combined. Add the flours in two batches while mixing.


3. mixe or knead the dough until it´s smooth. Put it, covered in the refrigerator for 30min.

4. preheat oven to 160°C. Roll dough on floured surface until ca. 5mm thick. Then cut squares and place them on oven trays. Stamp centers of the cookies with whatever cutterform you like :)

5. bake for about 15 minutes. let cool...enjoy :)




I hope you liked the recipe :)

I wish you a beautiful cookie-day!!

Kisses and cuddles
