Nieman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
3 tbsp white sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp instant espresso coffee powder (I used folgers instant coffee grounds and ground it into a powder.)
1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
Pre heat oven to 375 degrees f.
Grease a cookie sheet.
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and espresso powder and stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet. Cookies should be 1 1/2 to 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Bake 2 minutes longer for crispier cookies. Remove from cookie sheet and place on wire cooling rack.
