Espresso Choco-Chunk Cookies

"This is a piece of heaven. Got it from one of Martha Stewart's episode that showcased the 10 BEST COOKIES. I think if I'm not mistaken, this recipe was on top of the list. Well at least it's on top of mine as my husband would only eat this cookie. Enjoy!"

    Excellent cookie. When reading the instructions and it said to mix sugars and only one sugar was listed, I googled the recipe. There should be 1/2 cup white sugar listed in addition to the brown sugar. The recipe also stated to line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Mine baked in 18 minutes and I used regular instant coffee and put equal amounts of semi-sweet chocolate chips and white vanilla chips. Very good cookie. Made for Fall PAC 08. Thanks Shygirl.

    Yummy! I "intensified" the chocolate by using 1/2 KA Black Cocoa and 1/2 Hershey's dark. Also used KA Bittersweet chips. Baked for 19 min., but 17-18 may have been enough. They are "reeeely" good ! Thanks for posting. shygirl.

    so good! love the espresso mixed in it. I used brown sugar and sugar substitute and used pure chocolate chips for some, and others were a mixture of chocolate peanut butter swirls (chips). So delicious! Didn't need to flatten them either with the back of my hand as it spreads by itself so good thing they were spaced more than an inch apart. Chewy coffee chocolaty delicious! Thanks for sharing, shygirl!
