Cinnamon Expresso Chocolate Chip Cookies

I host the annual Chanukah party at my home.  If I start baking now, I will be all set, come Chanukah.  I like to make one gushy chocolate dessert, cookies and more cookies and some kind of cake.  I am starting with the cookies.  They freeze well and go quickly and I can munch on them and tell you how good they are.

When I spotted this cookie in Bon Appetit, I liked it because it only had brown sugar which makes a superior chocolate chip cookie in my opinion.  It also used lots of chips and I love cookies filled with other flavors.  I used butterscotch and chocolate and was tempted to add caramel but I thought that might be overkill.  This is not a good cookie. It is a great cookie, at least warm.

I have a feeling, I am like many others who no matter how many different cookies, I make, I like chocolate chip the best.  Tonight, that was proven again,  to me.  There is a reason to like them best if they are chewy and a little soft and ooze chocolate chips.

  1. Yum – sounds like my kind of cookie. Yes, for me a cookie must definitely be slightly chewy, and I love all the flavours of cinnamon, coffee, chocolate and butterscotch. Bet these cookies would also be great for ice cream sandwiches :-)

    Thanks so much for sharing these with Cookbook Sundays.
