Chocolate chip cookies

I bought an egg replacement powder a couple of weeks ago.
Yesterday I baked chocolate chip/nut cookies and they turned out great!
So I wanted to share the recipe with you guys:

Chocolate chip cookies

Ingredients
170 g dairy-free butter
2 dl brown sugar
1,5 dl cane sugar (or normal sugar if you like)
1 egg + one egg yolk = 2 teaspoon egg replacement powder +2,5 tablespoon water
5 dl flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
200 g of chocolate chips
Nuts of your preference

1. Set the oven on 170 degrees
2. Melt the butter and whip it together with the brown and the cane sugar.
3. Mix the egg replacement and the water in a small cup so that it blends, then add it to the butter and sugar mix.
4. Mix all the remaining dry ingredients together in a separate bowl, then combine the two bowls and make a firm dough. Mix in the chocolate.
5. Let the dough rest for approx 20 min in the refrigerator.
6. Make 25 small balls and spread them out on at least 2 baking sheets. Pro tip: if you want thick cookies don’t press out the balls too much, I let mine stay almost as balls.
7. Put them in the oven for approx 10-12 min.
8. Embrace your inner Cookie Monster (I’ve had 7 of them in less than 24 hours<333)

The Challenge of Culture

Often in the contect of Human Rights, we discuss culture and how it affects our ideas about right and wrong, just and injust, natural and unacceptable. Often a westernized standpoint come to dominate which is problematic both because it ignores sentiments expressed across non-western cultures, and also because culture within west is complex. When we discuss culture we take the context of us and our understanding of the world. But the term culture has a variety of meanings, and have as many understandings of what it means as there are individual experiencing it. As culture is always happening and being experienced this must be something dynamic and complex, even for one single individual. Culture is always evolving and changing as society undergoes change and modernisation and cannot be understood outside their movement through time. It is, as author Yuval-Davis says,  affected by both social and geographical aspects, and as they change, culture change. Viewing culture as something static, as is easy to do, would not allow us to view culture with its people, who are undeniably changing and moving through time, and would therefore not exist. To carry meaning for people, culture, therefore, has to evolve with society and be an integrated and dynamic part of community. Thus, culture is indefinable. In a human rights-context that is something we constantly have to be aware of and learn from, otherwise we will reduce culture to a static and non-progressing fact, an not the living life it is. And that my friend is a challenge, aswell as an opportunity.
