It’s been a while since we made some cookies. Who doesn’t love a moist, chewy chocolate chip cookie, right?
And when chocolate chip cookies are this good, why bother buying the box!
You’ll love the fact that it’s one of those simple, one-bowl recipes. And with 10 minutes needed to whip up and 10 minutes to bake …what could be better?
So, when my daughter Lizzy wanted chocolate chip cookies, I decided to revamp one of my old recipes and added an additional ingredient to the mix.
The secret ingredient is what makes these cookies taste even better than before.
Can you guess the secret ingredient?
This ingredient helps give these cookies a punch more flavor to the chocolate chips.
The secret ingredient is adding in a little instant coffee to the mix. Yep, instant coffee gives a punch more flavor to these cookies.
In addition, I decided to reduce some of the sugar and lower the temperature of the oven. Then slow baked them until their tops slightly flattened.
And, as always – baking homemade cookies will always convey the message, I love you.
Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe is easy to make and quick to bake; so why bother buying a box?! … right? 🙂
These chocolate chip cookies turned out delicious tasting! Soft, chewy, and with the right balance of sweetness and chocolate flavor, just the way we want them to be.
Not overly salty, nor too sweet, just perfect!
Well, with that said … I think you’ll have to make these cookies! 🙂
Few NOTES and TIPS!
If you prefer, you can use mini chocolate chips, about 1 + 1/2 cups should be sufficient.
Instant espresso coffee will enhance the flavor of chocolate in these cookies. No worries, you will not taste the flavor of coffee in them. I promise.
I prefer the Medaglia D’oro Instant Espresso Coffee, but you can use any instant coffee with this recipe.
Keep in mind, the cookie dough will be very soft and sticky. So, if you prefer, you can place the bowl into the refrigerator for 10 minutes to harden before you bake. When working with soft cookie dough, it’s best to use two teaspoons to help you drop them onto each baking sheet.
It’s best not to over bake these cookies unless you prefer them to be crispy and crunchy. And that’s ok too. So keep an eye on them while baking for softer-chewy cookies.
Best to eat them warm, when the chocolate chips are warm and gooey.
Perfect to serve with a cup of coffee or tea, as a snack, or when you’re craving something sweet. A keeper for sure!
A Fun Fact!
Did you know the chocolate chip cookie was created by accident?
In the 1930s, Ms. Ruth Wakefield, owner of the Toll House Inn in Whitman, Massachusetts, added broken chocolate bar pieces into her cookie batter thinking that they would melt. Instead, the classic chocolate chip cookie was born! Cool huh?!
