The Best Laid Plans

It’s Monday. And I usually have something new to post on Mondays. Here it is 7:30 pm and I’ve got nothing. NOTHING.

Today has been one of those best laid plans kind of days. You know, the one where you have all these grandiose plans, then reality strikes and things go to HE-Double-Hockey-Sticks. Maybe you can relate?

Anyway, I decided that I would share something that makes these kinds of days bearable. It’s a recipe for cookies that marries two of my very favorite things (No, there’s no beer in the recipe. I don’t think even I could be convinced to put beer in cookies.), coffee and chocolate.

I kind of wish I had the energy to make some now, but I hear my bed calling instead. Hopefully, you enjoy them. And feel free to bring me some if you make them. J

Java Chip Cookies

2 Sticks Unsalted Butter, Softened

1 cup Dark Brown Sugar

½ cup White Sugar

2 Eggs

2 tsp. Vanilla

2 ¼ cups Flour

1 t. Baking Soda

1 t. Salt

2 T. Espresso Ground Coffee (I use Café Bustelo)

1 Pkg. Chocolate Chunks

Combine flour, soda, salt & coffee in a small bowl. Mix together with a fork. Set aside.

Cream butter. Then add sugars and beat until light & fluffy.

Add one egg and beat thoroughly. Add second egg & vanilla and beat until fluffy.

Stir in flour mixture just until combined. Then stir in chocolate chunks.

Bake at 375° for 8 -10 minutes or just until set & edges are starting to crisp.
