Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Course Dessert
Servings 18 cookies


  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour spooned and leveled
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter softened
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar packed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 2 egg yolks at room temperature
  • cup semi-sweet chocolate chips plus extra for topping
  • Flaky sea salt for sprinkling optional


  • **Preheat Oven**: Preheat your oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • **Mix Dry Ingredients**: In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • **Cream Butter and Sugars**: In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar with an electric mixer on high speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes. (For a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment.)
  • **Add Coffee and Vanilla**: Dissolve the instant coffee in the vanilla extract. Add the coffee mixture and egg yolks to the butter mixture and beat on high speed until fluffy, about 1-2 minutes.
  • **Combine Ingredients**: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing on low speed until just combined.
  • **Add Chocolate Chips**: Stir in the chocolate chips with a rubber spatula.
  • **Scoop Dough**: Using a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop, form dough balls. Place them 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Add extra chocolate chips on top if desired.
  • **Bake**: Bake the cookies for 10-11 minutes. Let them cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool for another 10-15 minutes.
  • **Shape Cookies**: For perfectly shaped cookies, use a large round cookie cutter to swirl around each cookie right after baking to create a perfect circle.
  • **Finish and Enjoy**: Sprinkle with flaky sea salt if desired, and enjoy! They’re perfect with a cup of coffee.
