Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies
A gourmet is defined as a person who cultivates a discriminating palate for the enjoyment of good food and drink. Notice the use of the word "enjoyment." Chocolate and coffee. What more enjoyment could one need, really?
As an afternoon treat to accompany a cup of tea or coffee, chocolate chip cookies appeal to the most discriminating palate, they also provide great comfort. We dare say, chocolate chip cookies are among the most soothing simple pleasures.
The recipe that follows is a slight variation on the theme, adding coffee grounds for a bit of texture and a lot of taste. If you are thinking of making a gift of cookies on a special occasion, or if you are looking for a different twist on a Valentine sweet, these cookies are sure to make a great impression.
Remember, always savor the moment.
Ingredients (for 2 dozen cookies) ~
1 1/8 cup bread flour
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup unsalted softened butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
2. Combine flour and chocolate chips in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, thoroughly combine butter, coffee grounds and sugar. Add egg. Mix well.
3. Scoop dough onto ungreased cookie sheets with a 1 tbsp scoop. 12 cookies per sheet.
Bake at 350ºF for 10 to 12 minutes or the edges appear set but the middle is still soft. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
For a gift, allow to cool completely and stack in a large jar or simply tie a stack of cookies with a ribbon. This makes a nice and decadent bundle gift with Just Raspberry
