Coffee And White Chocolate Cookies

I was finally able to make perfect cookies! They were a bit chewy, soft and absolutely amazing. You can't go wrong with coffee and chocolate right?


Don't they look great? At least from whatever you can make out from this crappy photo.

Coffee and White Chocolate Cookies (makes about 14 extra large cookies)


-- minimally adapted from Joy the Baker


2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 cup chopped white chocolate chunks
1 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup caster sugar
2 medium sized eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon powder
3 tbsp instant coffee powder like Nescafe or Bru

Mix all the dry ingredients except white chocolate and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat sugars and butter till light and fluffy. Add the eggs & vanilla and beat for about 2 minutes taking care not to overwork the butter.

Add the dry ingredients and mix till a sticky dough forms. Fold in the white chocolate chunks with a spatula.

Plop the cookie dough by the tablespoon or randomly shape them up onto your baking tray. Freeze for about an hour and bake at 140C for about 20 minutes or till golden brown.

NOTES:

1. I used a hand blender to cream butter and sugar. It will take you a longer time when mixing by hand.
2. Cookies come out slightly underdone but cook up when you leave them out to cool.
3. Freezing the dough does not let them spread, saving space on your baking tray.
