Recipe type: Baking

Total time: 
Serves: 1-2 dozen
  • 185 grams all-purpose flour (1½ cups)
  • 2 grams baking soda (1/2 teaspoon
  • ½ teaspoon of espresso powder
  • 115 grams butter (4 ounces/1 stick)
  • 100 grams sugar (1/2 cup)
  • 80 grams light brown sugar (1/2 cup packed)
  • 2 grams of salt (1/4 teaspoon)
  • 1 egg
  • 5 grams pure vanilla extract (1 teaspoon)
  • 225 grams dark chocolate chips (8 ounces)
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine the flour, baking soda, and espresso powder and set aside
  3. Cream the butter for ~2 minutes, add the sugar, and combine
  4. Add the egg and vanilla and only beat long enough to combine, like 15-30 seconds
  5. Add the dry ingredients, and again only beat long enough until everything is mixed
  6. Hand mix in the chocolate chips
  7. Form into smallish balls and bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes (picture was 15 minutes)
Don't let the name fool you; in small amounts, espresso powder doesn't add any coffee flavor to your baked goods. It merely makes chocolate tastes more intense and rich.
