Easy Coffee and Cookies
Make this easy “LAZY” coffee on your countertop over night. You already know I really dig these multi-day techniques. They make me feel so productive, as if I am multi-tasking all day and night. Here’s a good base recipe: 80z medium grind coffee for every gallon of water. Mix room temperature water and coffee. Let it sit for 24 hours. (at least 12) Filter the coffee twice through a metal sieve lined with cheese cloth. Store in the fridge for about 2-3 weeks. I made quite a large batch here. Mistakes were made. Just be patient and filter twice. You’ll probably change the strength of your brew to suit you after your first batch. SO just make some. After it’s chilled, get a big glass of ice and add milk, sugar and whatever you like. I like both. Oh yes!
These cookies are amazing! My good friend Martha Stewart told me about this in her magazine this month. Also here on the webs. She calls for a half cup of dough per cookie. It would make them as big as pizzas! I used a quarter cup and they were still huge. I eventually switched to a small scoop which made a more reasonable sized treat. Next time I will make them more of a haystack puffy cookies as opposed to so crispy. I’m not gonna lie, they are really good. Together they make a great mid -day snack for your boring work day. Get your coffee started NOW and then head to the store so you can bake these tomorrow!!
