Coffee Chocolate Flake Cookies

On Feb 1st, I posted most fabulous Mocha Swirl Cookies made amongst instant java granules stirred into the batter to laissez passer on the java flavor.  It was an amazingly tardily technique to larn the wonderful java flavour ... in addition to I told you lot all inward that post service - "Now remain tuned ... because this method gave me an persuasion that I only receive got to try. It's coming soon!"

Okay, thence almost vi months afterwards may non just live "soon."  But ... I did finally laissez passer on my persuasion a try!  With success, I might add.  And thence these Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies were born!

After making the Mocha Swirl Cookies, I wondered if the same instant-coffee-granules-technique would function to transform regular chocolate chip cookies into coffee chocolate chip cookies.

Well, yes, ... yes, it does.

I tried several dissimilar amounts of java granules.  With 1 tablespoon, you lot larn a prissy subtle java flavour that was only correct for me.  One of my official-unofficial taste-testers friends described eating ane of these cookies every bit beingness form of similar eating a chocolate covered java edible bean ... first, you lot gustation chocolate ... in addition to and then you lot larn a delicious subtle striking of java on the backend.

If you lot desire a stronger java taste, add together a niggling chip to a greater extent than java granules.

To prep the java granules for the batter, I smooshed them into a powder.  I didn't desire to seize amongst teeth downwards into a large ol' hunk of a java granule ... similar this:

See how large those granules are?  So I position them inward a zip-top baggie in addition to smooshed them amongst a meat mallet.  Ahhhhhhh, much better.

Mix the java inward when you lot mix inward the chocolate chips, in addition to and then bake 'em upward only similar you lot would regular chocolate chip cookies.

Then relish a large ol' stack amongst a drinking glass a milk.  Unless you lot similar your java black, that is!
