¾ cup butter, unsalted
1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar, dark
1 whole egg
1 egg yolk
½ cup dark chocolate
¼ cup coffee powder (preferably expresso)
1 tbsp vanilla extract
½ tsp baking powder
A pinch salt
- In a pan add butter and heat on medium heat. Stir it constantly until it gets golden brown.
- Remove the pan from the heat and set it aside to let it cool.
- In a large bowl, add brown and white sugar. Pour the cool butter over and mix well.
- Add vanilla extract, egg, and egg yolk and mix well until everything is combined well.
- In a separate bowl, add all-purpose flour, coffee powder, baking powder, salt, and mix well.
- Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well.
- Add chopped dark chocolate and mix lightly until the chocolate is covered in the batter.
- Once the batter is ready, cover the bowl with a cloth or clingfilm and refrigerate for 1-4 hours.
- Line the baking tray with parchment paper. Scope out the dough and place them on the tray at least 2 inches apart.
- Place the baking tray in a preheated oven at 350-degree F for 12 minutes.
- Once the edges start to get golden brown, remove the cookies from the heat.
- Allow them to cool down.
You can serve the cookies once they are cooled. You can dust confectionary sugar or drizzle chocolate sauce on top. Also, sprinkle a little sea salt as soon as the cookies are out of the oven for additional flavor.
When browning the butter, make sure you stir it constantly or it will burn and taste bitter. Your aim should be to reach a golden-brown color and nutty aroma.
Also, when adding chocolate, make sure you fold it in the batter lightly. If you over mix the batter, the cookies will become hard.
Lastly, you can store these cookies in an airtight jar for a long time.
