Chocolate Espresso Cookies

If you hate coffee, you're probably not going to like this recipe. However, hubs does not drink the stuff and he has no problem with these!  They're not like drinking a cup of Starbucks (too strong for my taste) but you'll definitely taste the coffee flavor.  They are perfect with a tall glass of milk!!

I think the addition of the white chocolate chunks and cinnamon chips helps to temper the slightly bitter taste of the espresso powder.

Oh and there's no "x" in esssssspresso, people!  Just a little pet peeve of mine.  :)

Here's the recipe:

Chocolate Espresso Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, very soft
1 1/4 cups brown sugar, lightly packed
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons espresso powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups cappuccino chips or chocolate chips (I used KA chocolate-espresso chunks)
1 cup cinnamon mini-chips
1 cup white chocolate chunks

Place butter, sugar, salt, espresso powder and vanilla in bowl and mix well.  Add the egg and mix until well blended.  Add the baking soda and flour, mixing until blended.  Stir in the chips and chunks.  Scoop rounded tablespoons of dough onto lightly greased, light-colored (or parchment lined) baking sheets

Bake the cookies in a preheated 375 degree oven for 10-14 minutes. until their bottoms and edges are lightly browned; the tops shouldn't darken.  Remove them from the oven, let them rest on the pan for 5 minutes, then slide them onto a rack to cool completely.
