Answer #2

these aren’t basic, everyday chocolate chip cookies… but trust me… make these!!!

Espresso & Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 5 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons finely ground espresso beans (you can get this at most coffee shops that have a grinder)
  • 1/3 cup sifted cake flour or all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate pieces (i.e. chocolate chips)
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine bittersweet chocolate, unsweetened chocolate, and butter; heat and stir over low heat until mixture is melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Cool for 10 minutes.

  2. In a large bowl, combine sugar, eggs, and ground espresso beans; beat with electric mixer (i.e. beater or handheld mixer) on medium to high speed for 2 to 3 minutes or until well mixed and color lightens slightly. Add cooled melted chocolate, beating until combined. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to chocolate mixture; beat until combined. Stir in chocolate pieces. (The dough will look like brownie batter).

  3. Cover surface of dough with waxed paper. Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes (dough thickens as it stands).

  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees farenheit. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or foil. Using one rounded tablespoon, scoop dough in mounds 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Press down to flatten them down a bit.

  5. Bake in preheated oven 11 minutes at 350 degrees farenheit, or until tops are set and the cracks on top do not appear moist. Let cookies stand on cookie sheet on a wire rack for 1 minute. Transfer the cookies to the wire rack and let them cool. Makes about 36 cookies.

Answer #3

if you use tollhouse chocolate chips, use the recipe on the back, but instead of doing the full amount of butter, do half butter, half cream cheese. it turns out really good

Answer #4

I know this sounds wierd, but nestle toll house chocolate chip cookies are the easiest and best chewy chocolate chip cookies I have ever had! It says on the back of the package to cook for ten minutes, but if you set the timer for eight and then just watch them until they look good, it will turn out great! A way to tell if they are ready or not it the jiggle test. Pull the cookies out of the oven when you think they are down and shake the pan a little. If the cookies jiggle, they need more time. If they don’t, they are ready!

Answer #5


Its funny how such a basic confection in cooking takes SO much effort to master, eh?

Answer #6

Thanks, I’ll try them out!

Answer #7

buy some chocolate chip cookie dough at your local grocery store today! No seriously.

Answer #8

Nah… just challenging…

Answer #9

I know! It is absolutely ridiculous. I can grill the perfect steak yet I can’t master cookies.. very depressing.
