These were whipped up for a staff meeting today, making about 27 large cookies to share that didn’t last the day!  I had picked up a package of Hershey Chipits Coffee chips this past week and decided they’d pair very well with some hazelnuts, and a new cookie was born.  If you really wanted to amp up the flavors here, I just bet these would be fantastic sandwiched with some coffee ice cream.  mmmmm !  Read the rest of this entry
