I have to share two things with you.
1. Make these cookies.
But do not make them if you’re really hungry, in the house by yourself, or just really in the mood for a good cookie. Because I ate 6 the night I made them. Six cookies! Woke up with a little tummy ache and ate 5 more later that day. Then 3 Monday. At least the number per day was going down, right? They are delicious.
I did make a few changes: using all white whole wheat flour, a flax egg instead of egg replacer, and walnuts in place of pecans.
2. If you like steak and coffee, make this.
I’ve heard of coffee rubs on steak but had never tried it. Since we now have a ton of Honduran coffee, I decided to use some of our espresso in this mix.
Spiced Espresso Rub
- 2 Tbsp ground espresso (or coffee of choice)
- 1 Tbsp ancho chile powder
- 1.5 tsp ground cumin
- 1.5 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
Mix together, coat steak, and grill.
We used the rub on some local sirloin Saturday night. The coffee flavor was very subtle! I thought it would be stronger, but it was perfect with the spices in the mix.
