Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Course: Dessert
Servings: 20 cookies


  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated white sugar
  • ¾ cup salted butter, softened
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoon finely ground instant coffee
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour spooned and leveled, see notes (218 grams)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • flaky sea salt for sprinkling on the cookies optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Add ¾ cup of softened, salted butter, ¾ cup of light brown sugar, and ¼ cup granulated sugar to a large bowl. Cream the butter and sugars with an electric mixer for two minutes, or until light and fluffy.
  • To the creamed butter and sugars, add in two egg yolks, 1 tablespoon of vanilla and 2 tablespoon finely ground instant coffee and mix on medium speed for two minutes, or until the mixture is pale in color and fluffy.
  • Add in 1 ¾ cups of flour, ½ teaspoon of salt, ½ teaspoon of baking powder and ½ baking soda. Mix until combined. (Please see recipe notes on properly measuring the flour for these cookies. Too much flour will ruin the cookies consistency.)
  • Add in 1 cup of chocolate chips and mix just until incorporated.
  • Scoop the dough into 20 balls. (Arrange 6 at a time on a prepared baking sheets.)
  • Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven and sprinkle them with flaky sea salt. Let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack. Let them cool for 10 minutes and then dig in!


***Measure your flour properly. This is always my #1 baking tip. Do not ever scoop a measuring cup into your flour. This will always lead to using too much flour. (Trust me, I've learned the hard way that I need to measure properly!) Instead, sprinkle spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and swipe excess flour off with the back of a knife. Or better yet, weigh your flour. 1 cup of flour equals 125 grams.
