Triple Chocolate & Espresso Fudge Cookies


I've been dreaming of chocolate layered cake for quiet sometime but too lazy to make it yet pftttttt

But for now , these triple dose of chocolate cookies will  do .


Recipe from Sherry Yard's The Secrets of Baking

My substitution in red

Makes about 3 dozen cookies

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 stick / 113 grams cold unsalted butter , cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar ( 1/2 cup ) 
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons tightly packed light brown sugar ( 1/2 cup )
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 large egg , at room temperature
1/2 cup 1/2-inch chunks white chocolate ( 1 cup white chocolate chips )
1/2 cup 1/2-inch chunks bittersweet chocolate ( 1 cup bittersweet chips )
3 tablespoon instant espresso powder

* Sift together flour , cocoa powder and baking soda ( and coffee if using ) into a bowl and set aside .
* Using stand mixer or hand mixer , cream butter on medium speed until pale yellow , about 2 minutes . Scrape down the sides of the bowl and the paddle . Add the sugars , salt and vanilla . Cream on medium speed until smooth and lump free , about 1 minute .
* Add the egg and beat on low speed or until fully incorporated . On low speed add the flour mixture ; beat until all dry ingredients are well combined . Add the white and dark choco chunks and mix until they are fully incorporated . If using a hand mixer , use a wooden spoon to stir them in .
* If you want to bake them in right away , preheat oven to 350°F/180°C . Spoon dough by heaped teaspoons 2 inches apart onto baking sheet with parchment paper.  Bake for 12 to 15 minutes .
* If not baking right away ,  remove  small handfuls of dough from the bowl and plop them down in the middle of a sheet of parchment paper , creating a log about 2 inches wide and 12 inches long ; fold the parchment over , creating a sausage . Chill at least an hour before removing it from the paper and using a serrated knife , slice 1/3-inch-thick-rounds off the log and bake .

  9. My greatest downfall is chocolate. I have to eat some daily or honestly I think I'd be in a bad mood. Just a little keeps me satisfied the entire day. These would definitely do the trick and probably sustain me for a week.

    I've looked at Sherry's book to purchase but never did. Do you like a lot of her recipes?

  15. Ann, I must say...I wouldn't compared your cookies to Mrs Field. Indeed yours are definitely not Mrs Field because they are definitely better than Mrs Field's. Your cookies are freshly baked with lots of extra chocolate and dedications :D Mrs Field's are mostly baked by part-timers :D

  18. These sound deadly. I love adding espresso powder to my chocolate chip cookies. In fact the first time I added it I didn't tell anyone in my family and they all said they were the best I'd ever made. I consider it the secret ingredient. Espresso brings out the chocolate even more and with your extra cup of chips I'm sure these are heavenly.

    I looked at Sherry Yards book about a year ago, and thought about getting it and then listened to her on the radio yesterday in fact and thought I needed to go check that book out again. Now it's a third time, guess I should pick it up.

    Thanks for sharing.
