Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am a city girl and photographer who just moved to a small Kansas town . Living in a small town has gave me the opportunity to slow down and to pursue my dream of writing and photographing a cookbook.  Today happens to be a snowy day,  I could not think of a better day to create a new recipe.
