Wrestling with whether to label yourself a coffee connoisseur or a foodie? Who says you have to choose? If chefs around the world have made use of ground coffee in their signature dishes for years, why can’t you do it, too?
All you need is the right recipe — fortunately, we’ve given you plenty to choose from — and you’ll see just how well the culinary and coffee worlds collide.

Chances are if you’ve ever heard of New York-born sweet shop, Milk Bar, you’ve heard of their famous Compost Cookies, too.

Your instant coffee isn’t just good for getting a quick java fix on a camping trip.

We at Roasty think there’s nothing better than the taste of good coffee. If we could have coffee-flavored everything, we probably would — no questions asked. But since we can’t have everything taste like coffee, we’ll take what we can get, starting with cafe mocha cookies! The addition of coffee grounds doesn’t give the cookies an overwhelming taste, but they do give them a smell that’s to die for.
