Coffee Crunch Cookies
This was my second attempt at Coffee Crunch Cookies from Bon Appétit (2/09). My first attempt ended in cookies that were a hair’s breadth away from being burned. My husband and kids were kind and ate them. My son even called them, “the best cookies he has ever had.” But, I was disappointed. They tasted good, but the texture was too crispy and crunchy, and I had to throw some of the darker cookies away. I wanted to give these cookies another chance, so I tried again. This time I lowered the temperature in my convection oven, and I watched the cookies like a hawk. I’m not sure I cooked them long enough this time (sigh),
but the cookies were better. Their texture was better (less crunchy and more chewy), and I think the flavor improved as well. These cookies are best enjoyed with a cup of tea or coffee.
