As mentioned here, I am a sucker for the union of coffee and chocolate. I have used this
combination in cakes many a time, but have never tried it in cookies. Turns out it works
deliciously! These cookies are lovely and chewy on the inside and the coffee adds that little extra something to what would be a run-of-the-mill chocolate chip cookie.
230g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tbsp ground coffee
150g soft brown sugar
100g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
150g butter, softened
150g milk chocolate, broken into small pieces
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C
2. Sift the flour, ground coffee and bicarbonate of soda together into a bowl.
3. Add the brown sugar, caster sugar, vanilla extract and butter into a mixing bowl and mix until creamy. Then beat in the egg.
4. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture and mix until just combined.
5. Add the chocolate pieces and fold into the cookie mixture.
6. Roll the dough into a sausage shape, approximately 4cm thick and slice into 12 portions. You can divide into 24 portions if you want smaller cookies.
7. Place 3 pieces per lined baking tray (they spread quite a bit) and bake in the oven for
approximately 15 minutes.
8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
