Coffee’s message to you.

Is my message to you in the form of these bomb ass Caramel Macchiato Cookies.

I’m a coffee junky. I have traversed addict, as addict would imply that at some point in your life you regret your life choice and want to stop. I don’t. I’m am at the stage where if I don’t get my fix, it’s not pretty. For you. For me. For anyone. So I’m a coffee junky. In my refrigerator there is a rapidly depleting half-gallon jar of homemade cold brew. I work for a French brand and because they drink espresso, so do I. 3-4 espressos in one shot, iced. I love the smell of coffee, the way it tastes on my tongue, the way it goes down and either warms or cools my insides.. Everything. I am vibrating in place as I type this.

Many moons ago I came across these Caramel Cappuccino Cookies by Savory Simple. I printed her recipe and baked them the very same day, sometime in the afternoon and proceeded to munch down at least 6 cookies. Could’ve been 10.

My mind becomes hazy when it comes to remembering details where I am clearly guilty of some infraction affecting the ever expanding size of my hips. In hindsight it was a big, big mistake. Because though her cookies were amazing, I cannot drink caffeinated coffee in the afternoons. I’m one of those sensitive coffee junkies. I was UP. For a long, long, long time.

But here’s the thing. Time went on as it usually does and my mind became hazy. I baked those cookies again and again, changing the recipe ever so slightly each and every time. A little more espresso, a bit more cocoa powder – And then, well… I drizzled them in melted dulce de leche.
