Latte Cookies

I am a humongous coffee junkie. I drink it as soon as I jump out of bed. I usually have it black but from time to time, I add milk or cream. These cookies taste like a great cup of coffee. They taste even better if dunked in a warm espresso.

I have been perusing baking websites (not being able to sleep much at night, thanks to my 2 month old baby girl) and landed on the blog of Butter Me Up Brooklyn which I find beautifully crafted. The pictures, the recipes… I want to make everything!

There are so many talented bakers/photographers out there that we will soon be adding links to their websites, or rather Samantha will be since she’s the techno geek. In the meantime, enjoy this recipe.

Makes two dozen cookies
Adapted from ButterMeUpBrooklyn

1 3/4 cup (218 grams) all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (23 grams) oats
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon (6 grams) espresso powder
3/4 teaspoon (4 grams) baking soda
1 teaspoon (2 grams) salt
3/4 cup (170 grams) butter, softened
1/4 cup (60 grams) sugar
1/2 cup (115 grams) brown sugar
2 teaspoons (10 ml) vanilla
1 egg
1/2 cup (100 grams) semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment and set aside.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, espresso powder, baking soda, and salt. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together both sugars with the butter until light and fluffy for about 2 minutes. Add the vanilla and the egg and beat until well blended (another minute). Gradually add the flour mixture, beating well after each addition. Stir in the chocolate chips. Scoop the dough onto the prepared sheets with an ice cream scooper.
3. Bake for 8 minutes.
