Chocolate espresso cookies – and why this contribution is only now online

make a decision – at least if I have unlimited time for this – is not my great strength. If time is short, I will simply decide my gut feeling and this is usually reliable.

For this reason I left you in deciding whether my next blog post should include a cookie or a pasta recipe. The choice on Facebook and Twitter have won by a wide margin the sweet biscuits.

The recipe would have to go Friday evening or Saturday morning online. But when I learned of the terrible news in Paris, my gut feeling has immediately taken the decision: I can not publish the article and tell of chocolate as a problem solver. because, unfortunately, – and that is covered up by many times – is not always everything perfect and rosy. So do why as if nothing had happened?

today – later just over one day – the world is still not in order and chocolate no solution. Nevertheless, I would publish the promised recipe for delicious chocolate espresso cookies that one or the other, perhaps as early as May in our Pop-Up-Bakery has tried.

Examined her now and for an alternative to classic brownies?

but the jaws should still go quickly and easily?

AND?

Then, these cookies are just the thing for you. The recipe – me with a tablespoon more espresso powder – is from the book “Cookies” Cynthia Barcomi, I'll introduce you here soon. There, the cookies are as “Espresso Wake-ups” referred to, wherein the espresso taste – even with my doubled amount of powder – is not really in the foreground. It is rather an absolute Schokodröhnung! Nevertheless Cynthia has convinced me with this recipe again and these cookies are now part of my standard repertoire.
The baking is strongly recommended:
