  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl.
  3. 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.
  4. Mix flour mixture into the butter mixture until just combined; do not overmix. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Drop dough by the tablespoon onto the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
  6. 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 ...

What a great gourmet cookie! Rich and delicious. We followed the recipe and got 2.5 dozen.

I made no changes, I made it just like the institutions said. These cookies aren't good. And it's not just me that tried them.. I had at least 6 people try them and nobody liked them.

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!

Made exactly as written. Yummy! Next time I will cut the butter by 1/3 and add more espresso powder. I couldn't taste it at all.
