The Moonshine Baker:
Moonshine Baker: a hobbyist or professional baker that thrives on coffee to get them through the night of baking and decorating by the light of the moonshine. 

[Whistle blows.] The time is 7 pm as I reach to turn off the hissing tea kettle, ready to fix myself a fresh pot of french press coffee. The baby is down for bed, and I'm ready for my first (yes, you heard that right) cup of coffee for the night. As I sit at the kitchen table gazing out into the crisp winter's night, I see the bright white moon rising over the fence. I start to think about my great grandparents who lived in Kentucky during the 1920's Prohibition era. Speakeasies and moonshine routes have always been fascinating to me and I can still remember the stories my grandma would tell us.  She is the reason for my love of all things Roaring Twenties. 

What does this have to do with cookies? Well, most hobby bakers start off baking and selling their goods to family and friends, with the occasional trusted referral. Most of us are living on a few hours of sleep as we bake through the night; surviving on multiple cups of coffee (and a sweet treat or two) to keep us awake. I wanted to pay respects to my ancestors; the hustlers with entrepreneurial spirits aka people running by the moonshine. We start off with a brown butter coffee base before adding in a little more coffee, milk chocolate and semi sweet chocolate for the perfect 'pick me up' cookie.
