Ingredients

  • 1 C unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/3 C granulated sugar
  • 1 C dark brown sugar packed
  • 2 Tbsp finely ground espresso measure after grinding
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 3/4 C all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 C dark chocolate chips or chunks

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix butter, sugar, brown sugar and ground espresso until fluffy (about 2 minutes).
  • Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla and mix. 
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. 
  • Add flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until fully combined, scraping the bowl at least once. 
  • Using a wooden spoon, mix in the chocolate chips/chunks. 
  • Scoop dough and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes until just done. Remember, the dough is dark, so the color doesn't change much when they're done. Don't overbake!

Notes

This recipe will yield about 48 smaller cookies if you prefer. Just use about 1 1/2 TBSP of dough and reduce cook time by 2 minutes.
These taste amazing with iced coffee in the summer or hot coffee when it's cold!
