Espresso Chocolate Chunk Cookies

espresso chocolate cookiesIngredients
  • 2 tbs espresso powder
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 1/4 c granulated sugar
  • 1 c brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 3/4 c flour
  • 1/2 lb chocolate (I like a mix of dark and milk chocolate)
  • Amagansett Sea Salt, for sprinkling on top
Instructions

Preheat oven to 360 degrees Fahrenheit.

Melt together the butter and the espresso powder. Whisk in the sugars, then the egg, then the vanilla extract.

Combine the baking soda, salt, and flour together in a separate bowl, then whisk into the wet mixture.

Chop the chocolate into irregularly sized chunks. Stir chocolate chunks into the dough.

Portion dough into 1/4 cup sized balls. Sprinkle with Amagansett Sea Salt.

Bake until edges are golden, but the middle still looks slightly underbaked, about 10 minutes.
