Dark-Chocolate Cookies with Espresso
If you get Everyday Food (one of Martha's publications), find the Dark-Chocolate Cookies with Espresso in the October 2008 issue (recipe found online here) and make these cookies!
There are a like a little chocolate caffeine shot!
The winner is the tablespoon of instant espresso powder. This adds a nice touch to all things chocolate. (The Barefoot Contessa always adds coffee to her chocolate recipe to deepen the chocolate flavor). The second photo is the batter before the addition of flour.
The insides are dark, chocolately, and moist. You can definitely taste the espresso flavor...making it a "grown up" cookie. Everyday Food makes them bigger...if you do make smaller cookies, watch the time so you don't overbake them!
