Espresso White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am just going to start off by saying - I am one of the biggest fans of DARK CHOCOLATE. I almost think it's a waste for someone to give me anything else but Dark Chocolate. I prefer buying dark chocolate over any other kind be it Ghiradelli, Vahlrona, Scharfenberger and especially See's Candy. With that being said, I really have absolutely no idea how those white chocolate morsels found their way into my baking pantry? Not only were there white chocolate morsels, but there was half a bag gone, eaten! Plus, I looked around and found a half bag eaten of the Ghiradelli Bittersweet chips! I know, I couldn't believe my eyes! The worst part, half of a baking bar of 60% Ghiradelli baking chocolate- poof! Gone!! I know, I know, there had to be an answer to my dilemma, all the furniture was still here, television still here, oh wait a minute, teens, yes, TEENS! They sneaked into the pantry in the middle of the night and had a chocolate party! Well lucky for me, and them, there were still bits and pieces left for making cookies!! Wait!! Not enough cocoa powder- I have the best solution and combination ingredient, Decaf Espresso- or as JONES COFFEE ROASTERS call it, Unleaded! This recipe makes a beautiful cookie dough. Taste the dough, you really should, it gives you an idea how the cookies will taste.



Using a teaspoon using a heaping full amount for each cookie.


The cookie dough spreads out a bit. Bake for 9 minutes. Let cool for 5 min then transfer to a cooling rack.








See the bits of Espresso?


Show us your back Miss Cookie- gorgeous! These cookies are excellent, even if you are a fan of dark chocolate like me! Kids love them right out of the oven for that ooey- gooey chocolate yumminess.
