Mrs Fields' Mocha Chunk Cookies

I've been sitting in front of the computer thinking what to write . I'm not much of a writer , though I love reading books & magazines , I have to drag each word everytime I had to write in this blog *sigh* Note that this blog have more photos ? That's why ! No words :P :D But hey , a picture speaks a thousand words hee hee So anyway , I got this recipe sitting around and gathering dust :P , been meaning to bake it , say , few YEARS ago ? ^-^" The cookie batter reminds me of Haagen Dazs coffee ice cream , my absolute fave :D  Recipe from this book Mrs Fields Cookie Book

Mocha Chunk Cookies

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp ( french roast or other dark coffee ) instant coffee granules
2 tsp coffee liqueur
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar , packed
1 cup salted butter , softened
2 large eggs
2 cups semisweet chocolate ( chips or chunks ) - I use a cup each of white & milk chocolate chips

* Preheat oven to 150°C.
* In a medium bowl , combine flour , cocoa , soda & salt . Mix well with a wire whisk and set aside.
* In a small bowl , dissolve coffee granules in coffee liqueur , set aside .
* In a large bowl, blend sugars with an electric mixer at medium speed. Add butter and mix to form a grainy paste . Scrape down the side of the bowl. Then add eggs and coffee mixture , beat at medium speed until smooth.
* Add flour mixture and chocolate chips/chunks , and blend at low speed just until combined . Do not overmix.
* Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls into ungreased cookie sheet , 2 inches apart . Bake for 23-25 minutes . Immediately ( I didn't, cookies still wet at the bottom after I took it out from the oven  ) transfer cookies with a spatula to a cool , flat surface .

Yield 4 dozen ( mine's only 40 pcs , though some of it are huge :D )

  1. Anything coffee and chocolate gets my vote-awesome combo. I just finished off some Hagen Daz Coffee ice cream, so this recipe will be a good follow up-thanks for sharing.
