Iced Coffee
The daughter is trying to enjoy coffee. It's a peer pressure thing. It comes with  good so I can't complain. The same peer is a vegetarian so my kid is expanding her list of possible vegetable options. 

This recipe is for my memory. 

5 ounces good coffee
6 quarts cold water

Combine them, mix, let steep overnight or at least 8 hours. Double strain through cheese cloth or I use the fine mesh insert from my drip coffee maker for the second straining. 

Keep chilled and serve.

There was a cookie making competition and I created these cookies. They requested some odd ingredients, like cocoa nibs, coffee, turbanado sugar.

These didn't win an award, but they are stellar.

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
 2 cup and 2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon butter

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs. In a coffee grinder pulverize coffee and nibs. Add to butter. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Scrape sides. Add flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Chill 1-2 hours. Roll thinly and cut into shape. Bake at 350 degrees 10-12 minutes. Cool.

Melt butter and chocolate in a double boiler. Put a bit between two cookies, streak with additional cookies.
