I made these cookies (and this video) for you aaaages ago.
Seriously. At the same time that I made this video. In like, April or something.
It has just somehow taken me forever to post it!
And I don’t know why, because this recipe is, well, probably my absolute favourite.
It takes all the things I love in a cookie – chocolate chips, coffee, crunchy, buttery macadamias, and the chew that comes from using finely ground oatmeal – and smashes them together into these awesome cookies.
They bake up with crispy edges, soft, chewy centers, and big pools of melty chocolate inside.
And the dough. Oh my gosh – the dough.
So I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I’ve have been holding out on sharing this recipe for so long!
But here it is now, in all it’s glory, along with the step-by-step video the fantastic Eddie New shot for me.
