We all know and love chocolate chip cookies. Buttery-sweet cookies melt in your mouth so beautifully, they’re the perfect treat for those with a sweet tooth.

Really tempting espresso cookies
Crispy yet buttery cookies with a strong espresso aroma.
Melt the butter in a saucepan until brown. Remove from oven and stir in ground coffee. Strain the butter mixture through a sieve and let cool for 5 minutes.
Mix the two types of sugar, egg yolk and egg into the coffee oil. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, soda and coffee. Add to the flour mixture and mix just to form a dough.
Coarsely chop the dark chocolate and fold it into the batter as well. Cover the dough and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees for the last 5 minutes.
Make 9-10 balls of the same size with a scoop and place them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper, leaving enough space between them. Cook for 15 minutes. Then cool on a wire rack to room temperature. Complete it!
