Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat espresso and 1/4 cup sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer until mixture has reduced to a thick syrup, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 30 minutes.

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

  • Combine butter, 3/4 cup sugar, and egg in a bowl; beat using an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla extract, baking powder, and baking soda until well combined. Mix in cooled espresso syrup. Add flour and mix until blended. Fold in cacao nibs.

  • Scoop 2 tablespoons dough per cookie onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving 2 inches of space between each for about 12 cookies per sheet.

  • Bake 1 baking sheet with cookies in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Repeat with the second baking sheet.

Cook's Note:

To speed up the cooling, drop the saucepan into a bowl filled with ice water and stir until cooled.

This is the perfect adult cookie would go well with vanilla ice cream. I used super strong instant coffee and added chopped walnuts. Will be making them again. Read More

3oz of espresso was not enough. I couldn't taste that delicious coffee flavor. I would add more the next time. Read More

The cookies were delicious. HOWEVER they turned out super flat and I followed the recipe exactly. The batter did seem watery compared to other cookies. Next time I ll try to add more flour or refrigerate the batter before baking. Read More

A unique recipe that was pretty easy. I found 1/2 cup of cacao nibs to be too much. Maybe the person whose batter was too liquid didn t let some burn off during the syrup making process. I was worried it would be too reduced but that wasn t the case. Read More
