Soft, chewy, and thick coffee flavoured cookies topped with a coffee drizzle!
The idea of these coffee cookies came from my brother, Murray. He loves his coffee and requested I make chocolate chip coffee cookies! So I looked up ways to incorporate instant coffee granules into a cookie recipe, and settled on one.
I incorporated the coffee in liquid form into the wet ingredients, then added an extra 2 tablespoons of instant coffee granules into the dry ingredients to give these cookies an extra kick of flavour. I also topped them off with a gorgeous coffee drizzle. Approved by my brother, and the rest of my coffee-loving family!
These cookies are deliciously soft, and chewy, incredibly thick, and bursting with coffee flavour. The coffee drizzle takes these cookies to the next level. Coffee lover, or know someone who is? These chocolate chip coffee cookies are the ones to satisfy your coffee craving in cookie form!
This is a super quick and easy cookie recipe with no chilling time. You simply combine the dry ingredients, and the wet ingredients together, scoop the dough up onto baking trays, and bake for 8 – 10 minutes. They will not brown a lot, and may look undone, but don’t worry! They will continue to cook whilst leaving to cool on the baking tray, and firm up when cooling completely. Under-baking cookies is what makes them extra soft, and chewy!
These cookies received rave reviews from my coffee-loving family, and were requested to be made again very soon! I’m on it 😉
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4, and line a baking tray with parchment paper, or a silicone mat. Set aside.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, cornflour, baking soda, salt, and 2 tablespoons of instant coffee granules. Set aside.
Microwave the butter for 40 - 60 seconds, to almost melt it all. Whisk in the sugars until combined. Add the egg, and mix until combined. Dissolve the 2 tablespoons of coffee in 1 tablespoon of water, then add to the wet ingredients, and mix until combined.
Add the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop out 14 - 16 dough balls, then place on the prepared baking tray. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking tray for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
For the Drizzle
Dissolve the coffee granules in the water. Add the icing sugar, and mix until smooth. Drizzle over the cooled cookies.
