LOS ANGELES -- Dear SOS: I am from North Carolina and recently visited Los Angeles. While there I visited Julienne in San Marino. The double chocolate espresso walnut cookie is the best I have ever eaten. Would it be possible to get the recipe for this cookie? -- Pat Schwanhausser, Elkin, N.C.
Dear Pat: Julienne was happy to share its recipe for amazing chocolate espresso cookies, which we've adapted here. It's a must-have recipe for any chocolate lover.
