Made for Coffee Lovers

It's no secret that I love coffee. While walking down the baking aisle at my local grocery store, I stopped to take a look at the variety of chocolate chips. Just below eye level, I discovered Nestlé Tollhouse Espresso Morsels. I picked them up off the shelf to take a closer look at the package. Right on the front of the bag, this particular statement sealed the deal: "made with real coffee." I immediately put them in my cart with visions of all the delicious treats I could make running through my mind.

As soon as I got home and put all my groceries away, I pulled out everything I would need to create the perfect, coffee lovers' chocolate chip cookie. I used my original chocolate chip cookie recipe as a guide, tweaking a few ingredients, and set to work. The result was the most delectable chocolate chip cookie I had ever tasted—crispy on the edges, soft and chewy in the center, with chocolate and coffee notes in every bite!

If you love coffee and chocolate, this is the perfect cookie for you!

Ingredients needed

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup mostly melted butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine the sugars and vanilla extract. Mix well.

Alyssa, thanks for sharing this delicious cookie recipe. My eyes stuck to the title of the cookie. I think I have never noticed that Nestle Toll House has espresso morsels. Perhaps, I have missed it. Thanks to you now, I know! Thanks for sharing.
