Coffee Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Coffee Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Coffee Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/2 tbsp instant espresso powder
3 tbsp water
1 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
2 cups quick cooking rolled oats (not instant)
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, dissolve instant espresso powder in water. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla extract, followed by espresso mixture.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. With the mixer on low speed, gradually blend the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Stir in rolled oats and chocolate chips.
Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of dough onto prepared baking sheet. Flatten slightly with your fingertips and leave about 2 inches between cookies to allow room for them to spread.
Bake for 11-14 minutes, until cookies are golden around the edges and set in the center.
Cool for 2-3 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes about 3 1/2 dozen

These cookies are quite buttery, so they bake up to be a little bit thinner than some other oatmeal cookies. The trick to getting them to turn out just right is to make the balls of dough smaller than you might otherwise (smaller than I usually do, anyway) and flatten them slightly with your fingertips or a spoon before baking so they bake and spread evenly. The cookies are slightly chewy in the center and very tender overall. The coffee flavor isn’t too assertive and serves to highlight the flavor of the chocolate chips.
