This recipe for Cappuccino Chocolate Chip Cookies is fairly easy to make.  The cookies are absolutely delicious.  They make a great gift.

Serve with coffee or a glass of milk for most enjoyable results. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks unsalted Butter
  • 1 Cup granulated Sugar
  • 1 Cup packed brown Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 Teaspoons pure Vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 Cups all-purpose Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ Cup Instant Coffee Granules
  • 1 Bag Mini Chocolate Chips

Directions:
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a Kitchen Aid or large bowl with a hand mixer, cream Butter until smooth. Add both Sugars and mix until light and fluffy. Add Eggs, one at a time until completely mixed. Add Vanilla, and mix on medium speed until well combined.

In a separate mixing bowl, sift Flour, Baking Soda, and Salt together. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter and egg mixture, and beat just until combined. Add Chocolate chips and mix well. Add Instant Coffee granules and mix until combined.

Using a small ice cream scoop or two tablespoons, place about 1 tablespoon of dough on a cookie or baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, about an inch apart. You should have twelve cookies, four rows of three (a dozen to a cookie sheet).
Place in the oven and bake until golden brown, 11 ½ to 13 minutes. Transfer baking sheets to a wire rack to cool or place on paper toweling until cooled.
