Coffee lovers rejoice! Here's a cookie that will give you a strong coffee flavor inside a deep chocolate cookie. Add to that it's crunchy bits of crushed chocolate covered espresso beans you have an eye-popping treat likely to keep you awake through the end of a slow and dreary work day (or while playing tea party with the kids).
Adapted from a recipe in The Cookie Book, by Rebecca Firth, these cookies are definitely treats for the older crowd. If you'll have little ones clamoring for cookies, make some other flavor for them. These contain a hit of caffeine that you won't want to give your littles!
This recipe requires cold brewed coffee. We used double strength espresso powder to make the coffee portion. You can use cold brew concentrate or double-strong coffee. You can use regular coffee, but you won't get the coffee flavor.
Chilling the dough is not required, but it makes the dough much easier to handle and we think the cookies are better after chilling a couple of hours. Makes about 3 dozen cookies. Keep at room temperature for several days. Dough and cookies can also be frozen for up to a month.
