Brown Butter Wedding Cookies

The cookies for people who do not think they cannot bake cookies. You only need six ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • ½ teaspoon SALT
  • 1½ cups caster sugar, divided
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Method:

  • Melt the butter in a small pan over medium heat. Stir frequently until butter froths and begins to brown. Do not walk away; the butter can quickly burn from golden brown to. Once the butter is golden, immediately pour it into a large heat-resistant bowl and refrigerate until it starts to solidify, about 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, chop one cup of walnuts very finely.
  • Add a teaspoon of salt and a cup of caster sugar to the bowl with butter.
  • Use an electric mixer at high speed and beat for about three minutes.
  • Add two cups of flour and beat on low speed until the dough is thick and smooth.
  • Fold chopped nuts and 1 teaspoon of vanilla into batter.
  • Cover bowl with plastic and refrigerate dough until firm, about one hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 160 ° C.
  • Roll the dough into small balls.
  • Place on a greased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20 - 22 minutes.
  • Allow to cool slightly and sift over remaining caster sugar.

Talk to your children about sex

Talking to your kids about sex may not be easy, but it's important and it's never too early to start. You can make a big difference in helping them stay healthy and make good choices when they grow up.

It can be hard to know where to start, especially if your parents did not talk to you about sex when you were growing up. The following tips may help:

- Talk early and often. You do not have to fit everything into one conversation.

- Be ready to answer questions. Children's questions can tell you a lot about what they already know.

- Listen carefully, even if you do not agree with your child's opinion.

- Try using things that appear on TV or in music to start a conversation.

- Be honest about how you feel. For example, if you are shy or uncomfortable, it is good to say so.

- Tell your children that puberty is a normal part of growing up.

- Share facts to help them understand their changing bodies and feelings.

- Talk about your own experiences when you grew up.

- Talk about opposite sex and same-sex relationships.

- Talk to your teen about preventing sexually transmitted diseases.

- Talk to your teen about the options of contraception on the market.
