Coffee Cookies(Last Updated On: August 2, 2020)
Coffee Cookies: Soft and chewy chocolate coffee cookies with espresso chips. If you like coffee, you need to try these cookies!
We love chocolate chip cookies around here. We’ve made Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies and Oreo Chocolate Chip Cookies previously. However, this is an amazing twist on chocolate chip cookies! You have to make these coffee cookies. These coffee cookies are soft, chewy, and pack a punch of java flavor. Plus since it contains coffee it counts as breakfast right?!
Make them as a treat for yourself, or the coffee lover in your life! To get that rich coffee flavor we used both espresso powder, and espresso chocolate chips. The espresso powder isn’t finely ground coffee beans as some would think. It is actually coffee crystals that dissolve very quickly in liquid. For best results I suggest using espresso powder, not instant coffee. The flavor of espresso is bolder and more concentrated.

How Can You Tell When Cookies Are Done?
When you are making this coffee cookies recipe, it is important not to over bake. Remove from oven when the cookies are set and the ends are just beginning to brown. It is okay if the middle of the cookie still looks a little shiny. They will continue to set on the pan as they cool.
