Overall these turned out great.  I like my cookies a bit thicker and chewier, but considering how thin these cookies turned out, I was surprised how soft they stayed.  I’m sure the brown sugar helped.

I used a combination of bittersweet chocolate chips and chunks of hazelnut milk chocolate.  I also used the full amount of chocolate and instant coffee.  In retrospect, I should have cut my chocolate chunks a little smaller.  They really melted down.

I did use the suggested parchment paper and am glad I did.  They came off the pan pretty easily, but I could see a gooey, chocolate mess if I did not use parchment.

Everyone who tried these cookies loved them, so they could make it into my rotation again.  Or, I may just add instant coffee or espresso to one of my other favorite cookie recipes: Hazelnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Hazelnuts.  A very similar recipe, but a tad bit more flour, and a bit less chocolate.

To get the recipe check out the book Baking with Julia, by Dorie Greenspan.

    Hazelnut, now there’s an idea! Mine turned uber-flat until I baked them in cupcake pans so they kept their shape. Next time, I’ll add more flour and use hazelnuts.

    Love your pics. Your cookies look wonderful. I really enjoyed this recipe and might have to add it to my favourites. Though your idea of adding coffee to some of my favourite recipes is also a good idea!

    I love the look of the melted chocolate chunks! Hazelnut milk chocolate sounds divine. I too like a thicker cookie, but these were tasty!
