Miss Picky Pie and I just discovered that coffee is our new love. We both can fight like two kittens when it comes to cold coffee. Coffee flavoured chocolates or cakes or cookies, lure us more now a day other than anything else. I can’t bear hot coffee and also the smell but I can die for a glass of cold coffee or some coffee flavoured sweet afters. Weird Hun!!!
Anyway, I guess you have already read the story of my hunt for coffee beans. If not read it here:
I am that crazy when it comes to food ingredients or food props. And now Miss Picky joins me on my each and every adventure whether we try to develop some new dishes in our kitchen or we find some good old places with treasure trove food props. Daughters are boons I must say. I am lucky enough to have not one but two. Slowly they are turning to my best buddies. Miss Muddly Pie joins us too and plays a very important role. She is the taster who loves to eat anything that comes her way. Listing from Chalk, paper, insects, mud along with the food items too whatever looks appetizing to her eyes/mind, she will pop them up in her mouth in no time. And I have to appear for the examination of a vigilant mother in every second. Literally, I am always running behind her on my toes. She just turned 18 months, and already she has her own choices and demands. Considering The case of Miss Muddly Pie’s demands, Miss Picky Pie suffers most of the time. Being an elder sister she has to sacrifice her each and every favourite thing. Otherwise Miss Muddly Pies would shout on the top of her voice to own that particular thing. That tricky she is. My naughty little kitten. Want to read more stories about them!! Read Here:
Miss Picky Pie now a day wants new dishes every day and on the other hand, I am turning to a couch potato day by day. Mainly, when I see my cook around, I totally lost my energy to enter into the kitchen. My Cook feels that the kitchen is her own property. So when I enter there she looks at me in such a way that I feel like an intruder who has entered a prohibited zone without permission. On this context, we both share a kind of love & Hate relationship. When she is around I can’t bear her and when she is not I miss her badly. We have fights but at the end of the day, we say adieu with smiling faces. Because of my this lazy attitude Miss Picky Pie now become more active and slowly showing interest in making new dishes. My cook and she will spend hours in the kitchen and will make some tasty snacks. But how could one forget a mother’s duty!! So a promise made to myself (This kind of promise I make every day and fail miserably..:P )to embrace some kind of hardship and make tasty bites for my daughters. And these cookies are the results of Day 1. 😀
Making theses cookies are too easy and just a cup of tea for a 5 years old too. It just needs some exact measurements so that you should not spoil the taste and few ingredients which are always handy in your kitchen pantry. Take your 15 minutes time out and the cookies are ready to go in the oven. Tap your feet impatiently or finish some of your undone works in 15 to 20 minutes the cookies are ready to pop out of the oven. After tasting it I am totally flabbergasted. The flavour of the coffee in the cookie is not intense but exactly the way it has to be. It’s crispy and crunchy and you can’t control yourself to grab the second one. Let me, not waste any more time. Go and check out the recipe.
I have adapted the recipe from The Cookie and Biscuit Bible and halved the given recipe as I wanted to make a small batch.
