Microwave butter cookies

This morning we woke up with a craving for cookies, but we did not have them at home, and as you already know that we do not have an oven either, so we had to make these in the microwave, which also takes only 5 minutes in total to prepare them ... and it's very easy!

Ingredients for 8 units:
- 1 teaspoon of butter
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 egg yolk
- 4 teaspoons of flour

- Put the butter in a bowl and melt it in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds.
- In the same bowl, add the two types of sugar and a pinch of salt and mix well.
- Add the egg yolk and mix well again.
- Incorporate the flour little by little, mixing again until all the ingredients are well integrated and a soft but manipulable dough remains.
- On the glass plate of the microwave, place a sheet of baking paper cut into the shape of the plate.
- Place several teaspoons of the dough on the sheet, well separated from each other, since each will be a cookie and if you place them a short distance away, when they are cooked they will be joined.
- Cook them in the microwave for 45 seconds at 800W, if when you open you see that they are not made yet, cook them for 10 seconds more until they are well done but soft.

*Tip for cookers: We have made the basic cookies, but you can add if you like chocolate chips (to make cookies similar to chips ahoy), a little liquid chocolate, caramel... what you want!

Bon appétit!

Artichokes Cream

Today's recipe is perfect to take as a starter or light dinner, since, in addition, its main ingredient are artichokes, which is a diuretic food and perfect to take care of our health.

Ingredients for 2 servings:
- 6 artichokes
- 1 potato
- 1 onion
- 1 leek
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 tomato
- Salt

- Wash the tomato well.
- Peel the onion and garlic cloves.
- Wash the potato, peel it and cut it into pieces.
- Wash the leek well and remove the green part.
- Wash the artichokes, remove the part of the stem and the first leaves of the outer part, which are harder, until you reach the heart.
- Also cut the tip of the artichokes.
- Cook all the vegetables in boiling water with a pinch of salt for 20 minutes.
- Drain the vegetables and reserve the cooking water.
- Place the vegetables in a glass suitable for the blender and beat everything well until you have a homogeneous cream.
- Add cooking water to make it lighter and mix well.
- Strain the cream to remove the strands of the artichokes.

*Tip: if you want you can cut a couple of thin slices of artichokes, fry them in olive oil and place them on the cream, or place a couple of slices of goat cheese on it, so they will melt with the heat of the cream. It's great both ways!

Bon appétit!
