Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies

By November 28, 2015 Cookies, Recipes No Comments

I guarantee when you make these cookies they will be an instant favorite, even with the non coffee lovers you know.  I have learned to brown my butter and it intensifies the flavor in just about any cookie I bake.  For instructions on how to brown butter Panna just released an amazing video of Nancy Silverton demonstrating this.  Once you learn the technique, it’s simple, just don’t let the butter burn. The dried cherries add a wonderful flavor but I mix it up, sometimes adding the cherries after I’ve rolled out half of the cookies.

I roll out the cookies and freeze the, on a cookie sheet so I can bake them when I want to.  They are addicting warm with a cup of coffee – or anytime really.  I have to say this is the best cookie I have ever made.

Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 40 - 48 cookies


  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons of instant Espresso Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Of Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon of Salt
  • ¼ Cup of White Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Cup of Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup of Brown Butter, Melted*
  • 2 Eggs,
  • 1 ½ Teaspoons of Vanilla Bean Paste (or Vanilla Extract)
  • ¾ to 1 Pound Dark chocolate, chopped or chips
  • 1 to 1 ½ cup of Dried Sweet Cherries (optional)


  1. Combine the flour, espresso powder, baking soda and salt in a large measuring cup (I use a 4 cup Pyrex), whisk together.
  2. Place the sugars in a mixing bowl, using a mixer pour in the melted butter to combine then add the eggs and vanilla paste. Mix until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 1 – 2 minutes. With the mixer on a low setting add the dry ingredients a bit at a time, until incorporated. Take care not to over mix. Remove the mixer, cleaning the beaters, the stir in the chocolate chunks and cherries if using.
  3. Using a baking sheet lined with parchment paper roll out the cookies using a heaped tablespoon. Place them on the cookie sheet spaced 2”apart and bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or so until the center is done. The cookies will be soft to the touch.
  4. Cool the cookies on a cooling rack and store in an airtight container, if you have any left.


*A couple sticks of butter is also good but the flavor will not be as intense
