25 Days of Cookies, Day 2.
After a very long day at work, and with the thought of the very busy week ahead I knew tonight's cookies had to be easy. And delicious. Because a long day calls for a delicious cookie...or five. Yup...five.
I googled "easiest cookies ever" and found my favorite, Martha Stewart. Of course the queen of domesticity has a list of the easiest cookie recipes on her website (great list, btw!). I decided to go with mocha-chip meringues because I had all of the ingredients, I love mocha flavor, and I've never made meringue cookies before.
The quality of cookie you get for the amount of work you need to put in is in-SANE. Right out of the oven, these are like mini molten cookies- super delicate crispy shell and warm, gooey, chocolately inside. I cannot wait to see what they taste like tomorrow when they've cooled.
I know I have a lot more cookies to go this month, but these are a must try. Really.
I followed Martha's recipe almost exactly, you can find it here. I didn't have espresso powder, so I used a teaspoon and a half of coffee out of a K-cup I had on hand.
Are you a meringue fan? Tell me your favorite meringue cookie in the comments below. I've seen coconut, mint chocolate, and this mocha version. Now I know the mocha is so good, I think I can't wait to try more flavors.
