However, my favorite meal was when Grandma would make Homemade Blueberry Peach Cobbler for dinner and we got to eat as much as we wanted.

This cookie was also developed from the Bake From Scratch Cookie Chart. Melted butter keeps them dense and chewy. The espresso intensifies the chocolate flavor and shows itself as a finishing note rather than a main stage player. These Double Chocolate Espresso Cookies were surprisingly my son’s favorite cookie! He was pretty sad when I sent the rest of the final batch to work with Daddy and he had to settle for a different dessert.
