If you are reading this, please have a virtual slice of this Hazelnut Strawberry Cookie Skillet... thankful to have you here and I really hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my guests and I did.
So this week my sister has been on vacations and it has been lovely to have her around since we weren't able to go to Mexico City with her, also she is a medical doctor in the process of making her speciality on otorhinolaryngology (I had too google the term, copy and then paste it here, it's such a hard word!) and some friends who are starting their journey on becoming a MD had a few questions they wanted to ask her.
So that sounded like a fantastic plan, to make a coffee chat with my friend and my sister about all the medical insights that they needed to share, and since I enjoy talking and learning about the human biology I stuck around!
Okay, so this was the recipe that I created in order to create a yummier experience, since two of my favorite people were at my home! I needed to do something special for them.
Hazelnut + Strawberries = Heaven! Specially if you are a cookie lover AKA Cookie Monster just like me. This recipe hits the spot for those coffee chats, brunches, friend gatherings and so many occasions.
A slice of this cookie cake is fantastic with some coconut latter or a mocha latte made with nut milk. Or maybe just black coffee, if you are a black coffee drinking person just like your girl right here.
