Brownie Bites

Brownie cookies, need I say more?

I won’t anyway, cause I’m going to jump on my bike now and cycle to the beach and let my freakishly white skin catch some sunlight.

Have a great day!

I have always preferred savory food over sweet, especially after living in China for a year where most of the sweet food is filled with things like red bean paste and where the chocolate is just disgusting I give up my sweet tooth for once and for all. Or at least, I thought I had. After coming back and carefully attempting to bake again to see how it would make me feel, I discovered that there was still some left. I had assumed I would just take one bite of these cookies, find them too sweet and give the rest to my housemates, but I found myself sneaking into the kitchen a couple of times more to take little bites of these soft cookies, they are just too good to resist.

I’ve been overthinking everything lately: everything that happens, every decision I make and every conversation I have. Not only do I do this about things that are happening right now, but also about everything from the last couple of years and all the things that are yet to come. I’m aware that most of this is a big waste of time, I can’t change the past and don’t know what will happen in the future, but I just can’t help pondering about things from studies to boys and from in which city or country I want to live in to getting a grown-up people’s job.

Probably no one other than me has a clue what I’m talking about; so let’s just talk about cookies, cause I don’t have any doubts about these. And I have the entire Internet to back me up: these New York Times chocolate chip cookies are famous, and not just for any reason. These humongous cookies are crispy on the outside, gooey (if warm) and soft on the inside and eating one, or two, of these makes life a lot less complicated.

In Beijing there are a lot of small tea shops where they sell an endless range of fragrant smelling teas. You can sit down and have a tasting session in the style of a Chinese tea ceremony. I love tea and I drink it all day long, so I know I’ll be buying a couple of my favorite teas before I go back to the Netherlands.

During the big baking session a couple of weeks before my departure we made these aromatic Jasmin cookies. I was a little sceptical at first, so I placed the cookies on a plate in the kitchen for my housemates to eat them. Turned out I actually loved the combination of a crisp buttery cookie with a non-overpowering taste of Jasmin tea and I ended up finishing the whole plate.

Deze koekjes zien er misschien niet zo mooi uit, maar ze zijn wel intens lekker. Wanneer je één koekje hebt gegeten, zul je altijd nog een tweede nemen.

Speculaas (or Speculoos in Belgium) is a very traditional Dutch cookie. I’ve eaten it just as a cookie or I’ve put it as a topping on my bread, but I’ve never used it to put it in ice cream. I surely didn’t know what I was missing, because the combination of lemon ice cream and speculaas is divine!
