Coffee Espresso Cookie Candy Morsels
Mom and I have perfected the art of ordering groceries online and picking them up at the store. It works out so well for a food blogger because you can easily order exactly what you need for the recipes you want to make.
It’s easy to forget that there could be new products available and we might miss them if we don’t at least go into the store sometimes.
This is one of those times. We would have missed this package of amazing. Espresso chips! That went right into the basket. Oh, yeah!
Coffee cookies? You betcha! Why not? We have coffee ice cream. Hmm…. coffee ice cream with coffee cookies. That sounds really tasty to me!
More Coffee, Please!
For even more coffee flavor in your espresso cookies, I’ve used coffee extract instead of vanilla extract. Yes, there really IS a thing!
Isn’t that a beautiful thing? I couldn’t find it at our store, but it was right there at Amazon. It really does give a strong coffee flavor that’s absolutely delicious.
Soft and Chewy Coffee Cookies
I don’t know about you but I like soft and chewy cookies. We’ve discovered that the secret is to use more brown sugar than granulated sugar. If you like crunchy cookies, try a 1:1 ratio of sugar. If you’re looking for soft, though, you’re going to need more brown sugar.
You can try this with your own recipes if you want to try a softer version. Use the same amount for the combined sugars, but adjust the brown sugar so there’s more. In this recipe, for instance, I’ve used double the amount of brown sugar over the regular sugar.
Baking Your Cookies
It’s important not to overbake. I recently discovered that it was my pan that was causing my cookies to brown too quickly on the bottom. This pan works so much better than the cookie sheets mom has had for a long time.
I discovered this secret by accident but it has made such a huge difference in my cookie baking. But, no, cookies won’t be replacing pizza. Pizza is still number ONE!
If you like these cookies, be sure to try the amazing, soft Magic Unicorn Cookies with added vanilla pudding and vanilla candy morsels for maximum vanilla goodness.
