Cafe Volcano Cookies

This weeks selection for Tuesdays with Dorie is Cafe Volcano Cookies and it was chosen by Mcduff of The Lonely Sidecar. These are a very different cookie, not at all like anything that I have ever made. They are simply nuts (I used pecans and almonds) sugar, egg whites, and some instant espresso. They bake up to a cratered crispy concoction. I'm not sure if mine were a success or a failure. I forgot the coffee in the first dozen that I baked and we liked them a lot better than the ones with the coffee.

I used cocoa instead of espresso. I like coffee a lot but I just wasn't sure about how it'd taste in this recipe. I think it's great to know that they were tasty even without any added flavoring.
