The best chocolate chip cookies ever! This is definitely the recipe I would go back to if I am craving for something chocolate-y, crunchy, chewy, buttery, coffe-y, yummy.. (&the list goes on!) These are perfect to share with friends and family. Oh, how wonderful these are (: The coffee in the ingredients fosho` added a kick to the already awesome chocolate chip cookies. I enjoyed both eating and taking photos of these cookies very much.

Chocolate Chip Cookie
recipe copied from Neiman Marcus
-makes around 2 dozen

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder
1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cream the butter with the sugars using an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy (approximately 30 seconds)
2. Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract for another 30 seconds.
3. In a mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and beat into the butter mixture at low speed for about 15 seconds. Stir in the espresso coffee powder and chocolate chips.
4. Using a 1 ounce scoop or a 2 tablespoon measure, drop cookie dough onto a greased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Gently press down on the dough with the back of a spoon to spread out into a 2 inch circle. Bake for about 20 minutes or until nicely browned around the edges. Bake a little longer for a crispier cookie.

Before these babies head into the oven

After the magic..

I would recommend giving them less bake time in the oven. They got a little too crunchy/hard overnight. MmHmm, ENJOY!
