Notes

I love to make chocolate chip cookies. Well, one day, last November, I decided to add coffee and almonds to my usual basic recipe. They're so

delicious that nobody can stop eating them! Not even me. And no matter how dry and hard they get, they're still eatable. They do tend to keep me awake, a little longer than I would be, other wise. They go great with coffee, tea or even cocoa. Give them a try, some time! I gurantee that everyone who eats them, will want the recipe, if not more of the cookies.

have you tried it with a decaf?
