Chocolate Piñon Cookies
We have combined the heady flavor of piñon, also known as pine nuts, that grow on sturdy short drought resistant trees in New Mexico, and combined it with the soul satisfying nature of chocolate. These crisp munchables remind us of the way chocolate has been used for centuries in Mexico, the original home of cultivated chocolate. Chocolate was first cultivated in the jungles of southern Mexico as far back as 1500 BC. To this day in Mexico the cacao beans are ground with other nuts, seeds and spices. No matter what we hope you will enjoy this delightful combination of ancient flavors.
Note: Piñon from New Mexico has become increasingly rare, and therefore these cookies contain pine nuts that are grown in other regions.
