Order Up!

This week’s winner was Dark Chocolate and Espresso Cookies.  I used one of my own recipes as the base and then winged the rest.  

DARK CHOCOLATE ESPRESSO COOKIES

1 cup softened butter

1/2 cup granulated sugar

3/4 light brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 3/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

2 T instant espresso powder (you can substitute instant coffee but it will suck)

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups of dark chocolate chips

powdered sugar for dusting

 

Preheat the oven to 350º.  Beat the butter until light and fluffy.  Add the white and brown sugar and beat until the mixture is light and creamy.  Stir in vanilla.  Add the eggs one at a time and beat for one minute.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, instant espresso, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Add all of dry mixture to sugar mixture and stir until just combined.  Add chocolate chips and stir until combined.  Chill the dough for half an hour.  Form the dough into 1 inch balls and place on baking sheet.  Use Silpats for best results.  Bake at 350º for ten minutes.  Dust with powdered sugar when they come out of the oven.

    I made a batch of these tonight. I used dark chocolate mini-chips. They pretty much melted into the batter, creating a melt-in-your mouth texture. I might go way overboard net time and try these with dark cocoa powder. Thanks for sharing, Tracey!
