I love chocolate espresso beans, so had to make these cookies. I'm not disappointed, they are great !!! I used my food processor to chop the beans. I left out the nuts. Used my medium cookie scoop and yield was 3 dozen. Thank you

How could a Trekkie like myself not try this wonderful cookie? It is, indeed, a "grown up" cookie that I'm sure Captains Kirk, Picard, and Janeway would replicate. The chocolate coffee beans are a wonderful, tasty, crunchy surprise. Beam me up some more of those cookies, Scotty!
