Incredible Christmas cookies and Aunt Mary Appler, a little story
She was a woman of style and grace. Picture in your mind a black and white photograph from the 40s or 50s of the quintessential housewife with house guests. Always meticulously dressed, always ready to offer a cocktail or cup of coffee with appropriate appetizers. :: Follow Gromit’s tracks for more
For all you coffee freaks out there I present coffee chocolate chip cookies!
As I write this I am indulging in one of my favorite activities…eating cookies. Yup, those cookies, the ones to the left.
What’s really nice about that is I’m getting a shot of coffee, a few cookies, a glass of ice cold milk, and exercise all at once. Yes exercise, the kind one gets from alternately lifting a cookie and glass of milk to ones pie hole.
This recipe for coffee chocolate chip cookies is super simple to make and literally goes together in about 10 to 15 minutes. Some caveats though. The original recipe says to beat the tar out of the butter and sugar. Do not beat the tar out of ANY creaming of butter and sugar. Ever. I took that part out. :: Follow Gromit’s tracks for more

I’ve written we will be keeping bees at Clean Slate Farm this year and while wandering around beekeeping sites I found a recipe for chocolate chip cookies made with honey. Sucker that I am for cookies, and with bee hives and honey harvests in our future I reckoned I just may have to make these seeing as we’ll have a lot of honey around here in the future. :: Follow Gromit’s tracks for more
