Cinnamon Coffee Scones
In many ways, these Cinnamon Coffee Scones are the perfect baked good. Not only are they delicious (each bite is a perfect one of the cinnamon, coffee and brown sugar filling mingled with the moist and buttery scone), but they are also extremely easy to make. While the thought of baking scones conjured up British perfectionism, these are in fact the most forgiving pastry, ideal for both beginner bakers and a steaming cup of tea.
Coffee-Crusted Beef Tenderloin
Our highly caffeinated Chef Lisa always has a cup of Joe at her side, so it should come as no surprise that she's taken her favorite grinds and brought them to this most special cut of beef, the tenderloin. This Coffee-Crusted Tenderloin is a pull-out-all-the-stops star, a juicy, super-flavorful and tender (hence the name, tender-loin) main course guaranteed to have everyone buzzing with praise.
Triple Chocolate Coffee Brownies
Ever wonder how to get all your vices in one bite? We've got the answer, these fudgy and fantastic Triple Chocolate Coffee Brownies. Yes, it's mocha madness with these moist brownies chock full of brewed coffee, the trinity of chocolate (milk, semi-sweet and white chocolate) and chunks of chopped Oreo cookies. If that doesn't sell you on these blissful brownies, consider that they're topped with a creamy coffee frosting!
