Happy Friday My Dear Ones!
I want to say
so much for sharing in my goofy joy over my kitchen.
to read all your comments and share them with my
handy, hot, carpenter husband.
I love that you see and appreciate all the little things that make me
when I walk in my kitchen.
Oh how I would love to invite you over for a chat.
So instead, I made you some cookies.
Here are a few tips before diving into this recipe:
You need to allow a little time before mixing all your ingredients
to melt the butter and INSTANT coffee granules
You also need to make sure you allow this mixture to cool before adding to the sugar and eggs.
Or you may have bits of scrambled eggs in your dough.
Ahem- of course that's never happened to me.
Don't forget to slightly toast your walnuts while melting your butter.
It really makes a yummy difference.
Another essential step
is to taste test the chocolate chips.
It really is the little things that make all the difference.
And always always have a clean up crew.
I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we do!
