Chocolate Chip Espresso Cookies

Cookies are good. Espresso is better. Add the two together and you're in for a treat.

Good for making when you need a distraction from things like moving or cleaning or job searching or practicing.

Perfect for no reason at all!

The move is complete in t-minus two days! Then on to putting everything in order. Yep, time to make more cookies.
