I started this recipe with a bunch of peanut butter cups and a cup of espresso in my hand. I reworked two older recipes I've used to build this new recipe, featuring Nespresso espresso coffee. I love the added kick in flavor you get when you add excellent coffee to chocolate, cookies, creams, and rubs, so I thought why not try to add coffee to peanut butter cup cookies. What you see before you is the final product, tested and approved by my family and my two sous chefs during the experiment, Jenna Rose and Jaelyn Grace.

Yeast, banana chips and other ingredients not often associated with cookies might hold the cure for BCS - that is, Boring Cookie Syndrome. Boring Cookie Syndrome happens when a cookie-lover bites into a cookie and can't think of anything remarkable to say on the cookie's behalf, except, "Eh. " To be clear, BCS cookies aren't bad cookies. They're just, well, boring cookies. We might be seeing symptoms of BCS in the Tri-State area. An audit of 170 cookie recipes submitted to The Herald-Mail in the past several years found that the sugar cookie is popular, with 40 recipes submitted - beating chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin.

BOONSBORO - A granddaughter's wedding day is reason enough to bake a few cookies for the reception, right? Well Elfleta Reeder baked a few cookies alright - the 85-year-old baked two or three batches (50 cookies each) every day in the weeks before the June 28 wedding of Ashley Reeder and William "Harrison" DeStefano. "We started about the first of June," Elfleta said. The cookies were placed in cans layered with waxed paper and frozen at the home of the bride's mother, Cindy Reeder.

Students in Betty Schriver's food-service class at the Job Development Program at Marshall Street School baked 20 dozen cookies in April and shipped them to soldiers stationed in Afghanistan, according to a press release from Washington County Public Schools. The students also wrote and sent letters of support. The military contact person for the project was U.S. Air Force Maj. Blaine Clowser, who is married to Sharon Wagaman Clowser of Waynesboro, Pa. In appreciation for the cookies, the class received a plaque with a citation, Air Force patches and an American flag.

With Christmas fast approaching, my kids are going crazy wanting to spend time in the kitchen baking cookies. So, I came up another variation on an old standby. To give these cookies even better flavor, forgo store-bought peanut butter and opt for fresh peanut butter from the Peanut Gallery at the Pennsylvania Dutch Market in Longmeadow Shopping Center in North Hagerstown. The fresh peanut flavor will amaze you, and it adds depth to this recipe. I'd also suggest picking up some fresh vanilla extract, ginger snap cookies and any other recipe item you can find at the market while you're picking up your peanut butter.

MERCERSBURG, Pa. - The time has passed for peppermint. No more room for tree-shaped sugar cookies and other confections sprinkled in festive red and green. Christmas is over. We need a party cookie. A conversational piece all on their own, Bonnie Line's peach cookies might work well on any New Year's party menu. This ain't no chocolate chip. These cookies are super sweet and look like bite-sized peaches, color and all. Dry peach and cherry Jell-O Gelatin mix gives the peach cookies color and flavor.

Q. I use Yahoo e-mail on the Web, and it works fine on my work computer, but at home it stopped accepting my login. The same username and password work fine at work, so something must be wrong with my home computer. A. When this happens to me, it's almost always about cookies, the little notes that Web sites leave on your computer to remember who you are. If an important cookie is blocked, it may have no idea you've already logged on with a correct password. Dealing with this is easy, but not obvious.

One weekend earlier this month my children and I were home while my wife was enjoying a girls night out. As usual, the kids wanted to get involved with something, so I decided to create some cookies out of a few odds and ends I had around. I had limited brown sugar and a few leftover gingersnap cookies, so I thought I'd try a holiday variation on a traditional chocolate chip cookie. I added the shortening to give more body to the cookie when adding in the gingersnaps. If your gingersnaps are crisp, simply toss them in without breaking them up. Also, I used salted butter.
