E: Do you love espresso? Do you love cookies? Would you love to have espresso in cookie form? If you are reading this post, the answers to those three questions should clearly be yes. I decided to try making these cookies after realizing that every recipe I had seen for coffee-flavoured desserts used powdered instant coffee (mostly Starbucks Via these days, as I guess it is that much more “real” than other instant coffees). I decided it was time to change that. Real coffee in general is just such a wonderful thing. When it is made with good, fresh beans in an espresso machine, it is far better–if you aren’t a fan of the strength of espresso, though I personally find a well-made espresso so smooth that the strength isn’t a problem, try a watered-down “caffè americano” style espresso some time. I think you’ll find it better than drip or French-press coffee. Anyway, I digress.
