Tuesdays With Dorie: Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies March 20, 2013


This weeks Tuesdays With Dorie is being hosted by Peggy of Galettista. She is hosting the recipe for Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies which is located on page 330 in Baking With Julia.

I know I have made cookies similar to these, so I was trying to be careful with regard to using espresso powder instead of instant coffee. There was also the optional addition of dried apricots to the dough, but since I didn’t have any on hand and I knew Mike probably wouldn’t appreciate the apricots, I left those out. I did use a combination of dark chocolate and white chocolate since I didn’t exactly have a pound of dark to go around. That would be because I baked Mike chocolate chip cookies a week or so ago using the NY Times Recipe.

I also baked up these pretty little Beurre de Sel Jammers courtesy of Dorie and Bon Appetit


So we have had A LOT of cookies in our house as of late, and they have all tasted great. Mike really liked the Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies even with the addition of white chocolate. The only other change I made to the recipe was to only use 1 teaspoon of espresso powder that I sifted. I decided to sift the powder because we had an incident with chunks of coffee catching you off guard from another time that I made cookies.

    All your cookies look great! Those jammers are adorable! I used espresso for the cookies too. And made sure to grind it up, as I didn’t want those unwanted chunks either!

    Looks good! I enjoyed this recipe, though it could have had a bit more coffee essence.
