Bits of roasted cocoa beans are a perfect complement to the nutty flavor of buckwheat. Since buckwheat flour is low in gluten, it works like cornstarch (but with flavor!) to give cookies a fine sandy texture that is crunchy yet very tender. Serve the cookies with blackberry sorbet.

|¾||cup (3 ounces) buckwheat flour|
