Coffee Latte Cookies


Friday! Cookie time! Or actually, chocolate time! It's the annual Chocolate festival at Nordiska Museet this weekend, and I'm heading over there after work today.

I saw these cookies over at one of my favorite baking blogs, Baking Bites. Nicole called these cookies Chocolate Marble Cookies, but after following her suggestion and using white chocolate for the white dough, and dark chocolate for the chocolate dough, I had to go with Coffee Cookies. The dark part is much more intense, and tastes strongly of coffee and chocolate, whereas the white part is rich and buttery, with strong hints of vanilla. Lovely! In fact, so lovely that while normally cookies can live for quite a while in my freezer, these ones somehow disappeared...

Coffee Latte Cookies
Makes about 30

220 g butter, at room temperature
125 g brown sugar
125 g sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
275 g flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
30 g cocoa powder
1 tsp instant coffee
150 g dark chocolate, finely chopped
150 g white chocolate, finely chopped

Beat butter and both sugars until the mixture is fluffy and feels light. Add eggs and vanilla, and beat well. Mix the flour with salt and baking soda, and stir this into the cookie dough.

Now, remove half of the dough and place in a separate bowl. Add cocoa powder, instant coffee and dark chocolate to one of the bowls, and the white chocolate to the other bowl.

Scoop about 1 tbsp of each cookie dough, and place together on a baking sheet. Make sure to leave a lot of room between each cookie - I could fit about 10 on one cookie sheet.

Bake at 175°C for 8-10 minutes.

Those cookies probably won't even make it to my freezer...

Oh, they look so beautiful, Anne. That picture definitely makes me want to bake up another batch right away!

Just tried these this morning, and they were absolutely stunning. Only the recipe is not good for 30 cookies - more like 11... If you make them large enough. ;-)

Dom här måste jag prova! Cookies resept får man inte för många av...
Måste också nämna att du har en otroligt inspirerande blogg! Alltid något nytt, härliga recept och fina bilder.
Är själv helt ny i gamet så jag ser och lär :) Något tips för att ta fina bilder av mat och bak?

Anne said...

Henrik - wow, your cookies must have been H U G E! :)

Tack Joana! :) Fina bilder, ja, tipset är att ta.. många bilder. Nån blir alltid bra. Och ha bra ljus - använd aldrig blixt. (Möjligen en extern blixt, kanske.) Och lär dig redigera bilder i efterhand, det vinner du mycket på :)
