Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie

Yield: 2 dozen cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter, softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. instant espresso coffee powder
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the over to 300 degrees. Cream the butter with the sugars using an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy (approx. 30 seconds).
  2. Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract for another 30 seconds.
  3. In a mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and beat into the butter mixture at low speed for about 15 seconds. Stir in the espresso coffee powder and chocolate chips.
  4. Using a 1 oz. scoop or a 2 tbsp. measure, drop cookie dough onto a greased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Gently press down on the dough with the back of a spoon to spread out into a 2 inch circle. Bake for about 20 minutes or until nicely browned around the edges.
