One of the best things about writing a food blog is all the research you have to do to come up with new things to write about. Research, that sounds pretty boring, you might say. But no. Menus are like porn to me. Googling cakes makes me high.
I think I might have told you before, but I read recipes like others read novels. When I get a new cookbook, I go through it page up and page down. I look at the pictures and read the instructions, fold the top of the page if there is something I plan on making and make little marks in the index. I rip pages out of magazines and if I can’t take the paper with me I take snapshots with my phone. Reading about food is, a lot of the times, just as fulfilling as actually making it.
This is the simplest cookie you will ever make, I found the recipe on one of my favorite blogs (which is in Swedish, unfortunately for some of you) and then I added the sea salt for creative reasons. Here’s how you do: mix 200 g of butter, 1 dl sugar, 1.5 dl icing cugar, 5 dl flour, 3 tbsp cocoa powder, 1 tsp baking powder, 2 tsp vanilla sugar and 1 egg. Roll the cookies to a round shape and put them on an oven paper on a baking tray, then flatten them with a fork. Sprinkle with sea salt and bake in the oven on a medium heat for about 15-20 minutes. Serve at least three at a time with a big bowl of coffee.
