Even if you're not a coffee fan, we guarantee that you'll love these buttery and crispy little toffee squares. The little toffee chips caramelize in the oven, leaving crisp areas and some voids where the chips melted away. The varying textures and flavors in this cookie make it very special.
You can make this without the coffee flavor, if you so choose. We tried and enjoyed it both ways.
We drizzled ours with chocolate and sprinkled on some toffee chips. We used semi-sweet baking chocolate chips instead of bar chocolate. They contain more wax, but the finish was acceptable if you want to do the same thing. Again, this step is optional. It does elevate these little biscuits to the "special occasion" level for us.

Cookies will stay fresh for a week in an airtight container at room temperature, or in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks. We froze ours for 2 weeks with no loss of flavor or texture.
These thin and crispy chocolate chip cookies are perfect when you want something crunchy and chocolate-y. Super quick to make, and fun for little ones to help you with. For even baking, use a cookie scoop to make balls, then flatten to the height of your mini chips. We also added some chopped chocolate, and you can add chopped walnuts or pecans if that suits your mood.
No refrigeration of dough required, so it's perfect if you have kids (or adults) who want their cookies fast!

Cooking times will vary with these cookies depending on how flat you get them. It's always best to do a test sample of 2-3 cookies first to see how much time the cookies will need. When done the cookies should be lightly golden on the bottom, not brown.
Happy National Ohio Day! Today we all celebrate the 17th state to join the union. But you knew that, right?
We're residents of Columbus - Ohio's capital - and we're proud to live in the Buckeye State. Our 2 million metro residents work in insurance, banking, education, research, light manufacturing, creative businesses and government. We are home to a world-renowned zoo and Jack Hanna; the Muirfield golf tournament and Jack Nicklaus; the Ohio State University and its Buckeyes; NHL hockey and pro soccer teams; arts; and an award-winning science museum. Best of all, our city is a great place to find a job and raise a family.
When you visit Ohio (or fly over - haha - we know), you'll see cities, forest, farmland and water. Nearly all of our upper border is made up of the coastline of Lake Erie, the shallowest of the Great Lakes (and part of the US border with Canada). We claim a whole bunch of past presidents, and are the birthplace of the Wright Brothers of airplane fame, and astronauts including Neil Armstrong and John Glenn. Plus, the entire state is full of friendly, resourceful folks.
So, let's all celebrate with some cookies, OK?
