OK, there are tonnes of cookie recipes. But this one was the most perfect biscuit for me! So I have to post it, and keep it so I can make it again!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 140 degrees Celsius.
  2. Cream butter with sugars.
  3. Add egg, vanilla and coffee and beat well until combined and creamy.
  4. Mix slowly flour, soda, bicarb and salt until totally combined.
  5. Add choc chips and nuts, mix.
  6. Form into balls (whatever size you like your cookies, I used about a tablespoon, you can use more if you like a bigger cookie). Place on a sheet of baking paper on a cookie tray, spaced well apart as the cookies will spread.
  7. Bake at 140 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
  8. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before taking them off the paper as they will harden during this time.

Maybe I didn't have some of the measurements exactly right, but I found these extremely runny. In the oven they melted into super thin puddles. Tasty but look nothing like the pics. For the second batch I added much more flour and they came out better. I think they tasted great I will have to practice with more flour to find out how to get them thicker.

These cookies were AWESOME!!! I have to admit...I did make a few changes. I used chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips because they were on sale. :) I also used macadamia nuts instead of pecans because I needed to use them up. The dough seemed a little too wet so I added an additional approximately half cup of flour. I think my oven run a little hot so it only took 15 minutes to bake these cookies. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I liked the hint of coffee in these cookies. These turned out soft and oh so yummy! Made for July, 2009 Aussie/NZ Swap.

these were a hit in our house. my ss wanted to take them all to school to share. I let him have them in his lunch box till they were finished. He ate them all over a week. Usally he gets board with the same thing over and over. We did use white choc chips as they are his favorite. great recipe. thanks Made for RECIPE SWAP #41 - June 2010 in the Aust/NZ forum
