Today I made some delicious Mocha-inspired coffee flavour cookies, which was my best decision yet. The tasty blend of coffee and chocolate is not just for drink form anymore with this recipe for cookies taking the flavour combination to the next level. This very easy recipe made a soft and fluffy cookie that was great warm but also tasted good a few days later.
To make these delicious cookies I preheated the oven to 180C and started with the dry ingredients. I whisked the flour (218g), cocoa powder (25g), baking powder (1 tbsp), baking soda (1/2 tsp), cornflour (2 tsp) and salt (1/4 tsp) together. I set this aside and separately, I creamed the unsalted butter (115g) and sugar together (100g caster sugar and light brown sugar 50g) and whisked in 1 large egg until it had a smooth texture.
The next step was to add all these ingredients together. I brewed one shot of espresso coffee, using some of our I Pecan't Even coffee. This was to make the cookies taste even better as the coffee has chocolate notes and I hoped it would blend nicely. I then added the wet ingredients, and dry ingredients and folded in 175g of white and milk chocolate chips.
Next, I rolled the cookie dough into about 17 balls and put them on a lined baking tray. After this, they were placed in the oven to cook for 15-20 minutes.
The taste was incredible. This recipe made a soft and chewy cookie that would satisfy a craving for coffee either as a snack or as a dessert. I would highly suggest you try this recipe and I am excited to try different variations of it with different coffees, teas and chocolate. It really does 'mocha' me hungry thinking about these tasty treats!
