Cashew Lemon Cookies airs and graces

(Deutsch) It’s out of the question – the cashew is a total diva. That‘ because its tree spoils it. The cashew doesn’t care for a normal twig so the tree first grows the cashew apple that looks like a small yellow or orange pumpkin. And it is only than that the cashew agrees to grow – on the bottom on of the apple. So basically every cashew has its own apple. This apple isn’t really a fruit – it’s more of a fancy fruit-twig. Seriously, is that worth it? All because the cashew likes drama? Drama, drama, drama, drama.

Banana Chocolate Fusion Cookies

(Deutsch) Chocolate and Banana are a classic combination and there is a reason for it! I tried with fresh bananas first but the taste was far too dominant and a bit…well…too chewy. So I switched to dried bananas until I’ll manage to optimise the fresh ones. Loved it, cause you really only taste the banane when biting on a piece. Hence you should crush the bananas into smaller pieces if you like the taste to spread. And for everybody who is not that crazy about bananas – try the plain chocolate chip cookie, or the cranberry peanut or the cashew lemon version.

Peanut Cranberry Cookies

(Deutsch) For a long time I was convinced that there is no such thing as a cranberry in Germany. This is simply because we mostly use the word „cranberry“, too, and have been for the last couple of years now. I don’t know, maybe that’s just me but I was quite astonished when finding out that it was the same thing as the berry that I knew under a different name. I realise I don’t really come out of this story as very smart. Normally I’m no friend of dried fruit in my sweets. I cannot stand it when people (or adverts) try to pass it off as a healthy sweet…it’s fruit – come on! Anyhow, so I wasn’t too sure about trying this recipe. But seriously – the sour cranberry, the salty peanut and the sweet cookie dough – wow, I mean – you really got something there! Also, make sure to try the other flavours: Chocolate Chip, Cashew Lemon or Chocolate Banana.
