INSTRUCTIONS

 

  • Set out two large baking sheets and line them with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a small dish, mix the espresso powder and boiling water to make espresso. Measure out one and a half teaspoons of espresso if you’re using an espresso machine. Put aside.

  • Beat butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in the bowl of a standing mixer or handheld mixer until light and fluffy, about one to two minutes. Whisk together the egg, liquid espresso, and vanilla extract after adding them.

 

  • Mix in the baking soda, salt, and flour just until the last of the flour granules are gone. Add the chocolate chunks and stir.

  • Shape the dough into 1.5 tablespoon-sized balls using your hands or a cookie scoop. Arrange them so they are about 3–4 inches apart on the baking sheet. If desired, sprinkle a few extra chocolate chips on top. Bake, one sheet at a time, for 8 to 11 minutes, or until the middles appear slightly underdone and the edges harden.

 

  • After taking the baking sheet out of the oven, quickly knock it hard but gently against the counter if the cookies have risen too much. While the cookies are baking, cut or shave a chocolate bar finely and sprinkle some chocolate in the center of each one.

NOTES

 

  • Measuring Flour: Getting soft cookies that spread evenly and don’t get overly puffed requires measuring your flour correctly. Use a kitchen scale or the scoop-and-level method to measure your flour.

  • Espresso Powder: Regular or decaf espresso powder will work just fine. If you have an espresso maker, you may use it to produce a shot of espresso and then measure out 1.5 tablespoons of the liquid (use no more than that to avoid the cookies being too moist).

 

  • Storage and Freezing: An airtight container containing the coffee cookies can be kept at room temperature for four to five days. Place the baked cookies in an airtight freezer bag and freeze for up to two months.

  • Scoop the dough onto a baking sheet, freeze it until semi-frozen, and then transfer it to a ziplock freezer bag if you want to freeze the dough and bake the cookies later.

Are coffee cookies high in caffeine?

  • About eighteen cookies can be produced from this recipe, and just 1.5 tablespoons of espresso—less than one shot—are used in the entire dish. One or two cookies won’t provide you with much caffeine unless you consume the entire batch at once.

 

  • The flavor of the cookies will remain the same even if you use decaf espresso if you are extremely sensitive to caffeine!
