ESPRESSO/ARIZONA CHOCOLATE CHIPS COOKIES


Ever since the hospitalization I began very lazy in updating my blog....goodness I'm still on Eyba's Birthday Party menu where tomorrow we will be preparing for my eldest birthday party. I'm pushing myself to complete Eyba's party first or I ended up with outstanding entry. It's always difficult to START but I have to. This chocolate chips recipe I found in Lemondrop blog but I just made a little twist by adding espresso...I love coffee so some flavour in it made the cookies wonders.

They also don't spread much in the oven, so they're on the thicker side, which is another must for me. All of the brown sugar in the recipe contributes to the chewiness, but it also gives these cookies great flavor. As for the espresso? It lends a bit of a speckled appearance to the cookies, and I could definitely smell it in the dough and even in the baked cookies.

Smell great and taste good........perfect for any occasions.


Espresso /Arizona Chocolate Chips Cookies   Print Save Recipe

Ingredients:


2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup butter, softened (1/2 pound)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee - I used Nescafe
2 cups oats 
2 cups shredded coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup chocolate chips  

Directions:


Place rack in center of oven and preheat to 350F.  In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder,espresso and salt; set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla.  Add the reserved flour mixture; beat just until mixed.  Lastly, add the oatmeal, shredded coconut, pecans, and chocolate chips; beat just until the ingredients are incorporated.

Using a #50 cookie scoop (about the size of 1 tablespoon), portion dough onto parchment or silicone lined baking sheet (I was able to get 15 on each 1/2 sheet tray).  Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes.  Cool and enjoy!
