Sassy Sweets: Latte Cookies

Print Friendly and PDF
For the past few years, I have been actively trying (and actively failing) to sign up for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap!  Every year around Thanksgiving, I think to myself, remember that cookie swap?  You wanted to be in it.  Why don't you look it up and see what's going on?

Every year, by that time, sign-ups are closed and I'm out of the loop, again, vowing, again, to make it in time next year.  Finally, by last year, I was so annoyed I missed it, I just signed up for their newsletter.  Easy, I thought.  I'll get a little sign-up form the DAY it goes out!  Of course that is exactly what happened, and I ALMOST missed it again just due to travel schedules and hectic lives.  But, I remembered on the very last day and signed up.  WOO!  This year I am IN!

Now though, comes the tricky part.  I have to figure out the type of cookies I want to make.  The last three weekends I have whipped up a few batches of cookies.  Each of them was met with a resounding chorus of happiness from John.  I can't send them all so I have picked one and the rest of them, well, you all get to enjoy in advance!
Latte Cookies
Serves:  18 (3 dozen cookies)
3/4 cups butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon espresso powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cups white chocolate chips
2/3 cups dark chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar until well-combined.  Add vanilla and egg and beat until the mixture is smooth.  Add flour, espresso powder, and baking soda.  On low speed, carefully mix the dry ingredients in until the dough is completely mixed.  Stir in white chocolate and dark chocolate chips.

Using two spoons, scoop onto ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake 8-10 minutes, until the cookies are golden brown on the bottom and look dry on top.  Let cool and store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
