Instant Coffee Cookies

With the hustle and bustle of summer, family reunionsand even the simple “just because,” National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day comes at the perfect time of year. It's an excuse to indulge in the art of baking (and eating) cookies.

Cookies arrived in the U.S. in the 17th century, even though the word arrived much later with the Dutch original form of “koekje,” meaning “little cake.” This was soon shortened to “cooky” or “cookie,” although cookies themselves seem to date back as far as 7th-century Persia. Since then, they’ve become a global phenomenon available in thousands of varieties, flavors and styles—and each will make your mouth water.

Chocolate chip cookies happen to be an American favorite(no shocker there!). In the U.S. alone, over 7 billion chocolate chip cookies are eaten every year. So it's no surprise why this cookie is worthy of its own holiday.

To celebrate, we're baking what we call Instant Death Cookies with our very own Death Wish Dark Roast Instant Coffee. This recipe makes 30 cookies, but we haven’t decided if we are sharing or not.
