Anyone that knows me knows I have a strong love for coffee! So when we decided on having a Christmas cookie exchange and I was sure we were going to have a hot cocoa and coffee bar as well as making a hot chocolate cookie, my husband suggested I bake some kind of coffee cookie. If you like coffee & chocolate, you’ll love this cookie!
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 2 large eggs
- 12 oz bag mini chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup instant espresso or coffee granules
- 1/4 cup whole coffee beans (optional)
In a large mixing bowl combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
In a mixer cream butter, brown sugar, sugar, & vanilla extract until fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time.
Gradually add flour mixture until well incorporated.
Stir in chocolate chips and coffee or espresso granules.
Use a cookie scoop and drop on parchment paper lined cookie sheets.
Bake at 350° (or 375° I have to lower the temp for our oven) for 11-13 minutes (took our oven 13 minutes).
Optional: remove and promptly press a coffee bean in the center of each cookie.
Depending on the size of your cookie scoop it can yield between 3-5 dozen. Mine made 59 cookies with a small scoop.
Can use 12 oz bag of regular size semi sweet chocolate chips, but the minis seem to spread through the cookie better.
I always have the best intention of taking a picture of them on a pretty plate after they cool, and well I get side tracked with a house full of kiddos:)
