Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl.

  • Cream brown sugar, butter, and white sugar together in a bowl until fluffy. Beat in eggs 1 at a time until thoroughly combined. Mix in instant espresso powder and vanilla extract.

  • Mix flour mixture into the butter mixture until just combined; do not overmix. Fold in chocolate chips.

  • Drop dough by the tablespoon onto the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges of cookies are set, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool cookies on the pans 2 to 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Note:

These cookies spread a lot while baking. If they spread too much, however, you can refrigerate the dough for 30 to 60 minutes before baking.

YUM! These are wonderful cookies. I didn't change anything and they baked perfectly in about 12 minutes for me. I've eaten 4 already and the dough isn't all baked yet! I'm estimating I'll have somewhere between 3 and 4 dozen cookies just about what the recipe said. This one is a real winner. Try it you won't regret it! Read More

I measured all my ingredients and found that the dough had too much flour. The cookies were rather dry and didn't spread enough. I like mine more like chocolate chip cookies which uses 2 1/4 cups of flour ( I also add 1/4 c. of oatmeal). I added an extra T. of coffee. The dough didn't taste much like coffee and the cardamom taste was almost non existent. FYI: I love the taste of cardamom and use it in coffee bread and a buttermilk cake. 10 Minutes was too short and 15 minutes was too long to bake. I settled on 3 minutes. Would I make them again. No. Read More

Made exactly as recipe said. Made nearly 5 dozen 2” diameter cookies. Cardamom flavor is great but I agree the coffee is seriously lacking. Next time will definitely up to 3 tbsp or even 4. Read More

I was thinking these had too much flour compared to a lot of cookies I make with the same amount of other ingredients. I still followed the recipe exactly. They are chewy and delicious! Read More
