Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies.
This recipe calls for Espresso Powder but I substituted Instant Coffee Granules because that's what I had on hand. Also, this recipe calls for butter but I like to use Butter Flavor Shortening (Crisco) just because I like the way the texture of the cookies are with Shortening. One more thing, the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of Espresso Powder (or Instant Coffee). If you like more of a subtle Coffee flavor, I suggest using a little less than the 1/4 cup.
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup of softened butter ( or Butter Flavor Crisco)
1 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup Espresso Powder ( or Instant Coffee Granules)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light.
Beat in eggs, one at a time, followed by cocoa powder, Espresso Powder and vanilla.
Mix ingredients for 1-2 minutes or until completely combined.
With the mixer on low speed, gradually blend in the flour mixture until fully incorporated.
Stir in Chocolate Chips.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls and bake on lined baking sheets for
9-11 minutes until cookies are set but still soft.
Allow cookies to cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.🍫☕️🍪🍫☕️🍪🍫☕️🍪🍫☕️🍪🍫☕️🍪🍫☕️🍪#chocolate #foodphotographer #foodphotography #baking #foodpic #foodpics #foodphoto #foodphotos #foodporn #dessertporn #feedfeed #thebakefeed #huffposttaste #f52grams #bonappetitmag #bonappetit #beautifulfood #beautifulcuisines #instafood #dessert #chocolatechip #darkfoodphoto #cookies #goodeats #overheadshot #coffee
