February 17, 2011 at 8:09 am 1 comment

This recipe is from the Sun Dried Tomato Cafe and Bistro with locations in California.  I have never been but it looks great and this cookie is on the catering menu. I found it in a cooking magazine about 10 years ago. Don’t be afraid to add more chocolate chips to the final batter.

CHOCOLATE ESPRESSO COOKIES

3 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2 cups (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips
1 stick (1/2 c.) unsalted butter cut in pieces
3 large eggs
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2  1/4 teaspoons instant espresso or finely ground dark roast coffee
3/4 cup flour
1/3 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped walnuts

In double boiler, melt unsweetened chocolate, 1 cup of chocolate chips and butter. Stir till smooth.

In bowl with electric mixer beat eggs, sugar and coffee on high speed till thick and pale and mixture forms ribbon when beaters are lifted, about 3 minutes.

Beat in chocolate mixture. Sift in dry ingredients till combined. Stir in remaining chocolate chips and walnuts.

Drop batter by tablespoon about 2” apart on baking sheets.

Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes till puffed and cracked on top.
