Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies


Winter seems like the perfect season for eating warm cookies with a hot chocolate while sitting by the fireplace and watching a movie. Idealistic, maybe, but you can enjoy a part of that by baking some delicious cookies! This recipe isn't your regular cookie- it's a more "grown-up" version of everyone's childhood favorite. With coffee grinds, it boasts a bold coffee flavor, with an offsetting sweetness from the chocolate chips and cookie dough. I have tons of friends who love coffee, and can't live without it. With all of the coffee craze around me, I thought, why not a coffee cookie? Make this simple cookie for all of your coffee-loving friends!

My friend, Grace, asked me to write a post about cookies,so this post's for her! She does makeup and makes beauty-related videos on Youtube. Click (here) to see her channel!

Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies (Makes 2 dozen cookies)
1 stick Butter, Softened
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Sugar
2 tbsp Coffee Grinds
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1/4 cup White Chocolate Chips
1 1/4 cup Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. In a mixing bowl with an electronic mixer, cream butter, sugar, and coffee grinds until completely incorporated and airy.
3. Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time, until incorporated.
4. Mix in chocolate chips on low until combined.
5. Add dry ingredients at once. Mix on low until combined.
6. Use a cookie scoop to scoop cookies onto an aluminum foil or parchment lined baking sheet about 3 inches apart from one another.
7. Bake in the center of the oven for about 15 minutes, until the edges are golden.
8. Remove foil or parchment from the baking sheet and allow to cool before removing the cookies.

Serve these cookies with a glass of milk, hot chocolate, or coffee (of course). You can also sandwich some vanilla ice cream between two cookies! It's a delicious treat, but you have to make sure that the cookies are completely cool so the ice cream doesn't melt too quickly. My roommate and I tested the ice cream cookies, and they were YUMMY! Try this simple recipe at home, and share them with your closest friends!

  1. I love this electronic mixer ; it looks great and works great too! I bake on a regular basis and I love how easy it is to use this mixer, it doesn't take long at all to mix up a batch of cake, I also love that you can store the beaters right next to the mixer, no more searching for beater blades!
