Weather: -8, pretty blue skies
What I’m listening to: Blue Skies, Ella Fitzgerald
While I was in Hawaii, I was introduced to the local favorite Big Island Candies. I brought home a few goodies with me on the plane, one of which was a bag of “White-Dipped Hawaiian Coffee Shortbread Cookies.” One bite and my mother-in-law said, “Mmm. Can you make these?” The next day I had a test batch on the counter ready for tasting. Success!
These cookies are crunchy and buttery, with the rich flavor and aroma of freshly ground coffee. Perfect for dunking in your cup of joe. That little bit of white chocolate adds the perfect amount of sweetness. We may have a new family favorite on our hands, folks.
