Chocolate Cream Pies

Today's post started out with much higher aspirations. I was going to make something fancy and do amazing things with props and then life happened. The day called for something soothing. Some people eat soup to soothe their soul, I call your soup and raise you chocolate cream pies. The world needed something a little stronger, something with three types of chocolate and some coffee. Now when some of you make this, you will correctly make the instant coffee and only use a half a cup of it. Today called for the whole packet of instant coffee in 1/2 cup of hot water. I dare you to do it, you will thank me later. These are soft and pillowy cookies and when you get those bites of milk chocolate chunks the world will seem a little better. 

Chocolate Caramel Crunch Biscotti

Since I was a child I had a weird obsession with biscotti, I never liked coffee really but I loved these often stale or crunchy cookie like things. Then enter David Lebovitz's biscotti recipe. Im pretty much obsessed with David Lebovitz and wondered if he had a recipe for biscotti and low and behold, he did. So I set out to make a version that everyone would love with our without coffee. Not to toot my own horn but boy did I succeed. I had been given a box of snickers and wanted to find a way to use them in my recipe development, so you can see where this is going.

Though my family has some discerning cookie tasters and managed to even wow a few soft cookie enthusiast.
