Oh, I'm sorry. Did you say something? I couldn't hear you because the baby and I were bouncing off the walls from the caffeine buzz. So, apparently, giving up all caffinated beverages for 6 months means it will be a BAD idea to eat espresso chocolate cookies before bed. I could literally feel this kid doing flips and kicks for a good 30 minutes.
However, my shortbread feelings still stand: They aren't my cup of tea (espresso?). I just don't like the texture. Alex loves them, though, so I still make them for him...hoping that each time, I'll change my mind and love them. Nope, sorry. I can say, though, that they are asty little things, with a rich coffee dough and studded with chocolate. They aren't too sweet and would go very nicely with a cup of coffee. Decaf, definitely.
