  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp espresso powder
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chocolate chips or any other mix-ins of your choice


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, espresso powder and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  4. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients until just combined.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips or other mix-ins.
  7. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, portion the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Alternatively, you can roll the dough into a log and wrap it tightly in plastic wrap.
  8. Freeze the cookie dough until solid, about 1 hour.
  9. Once frozen, transfer the cookie dough to a resealable plastic bag and label with the date and type of cookie dough.
  10. To bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  11. If using portioned dough, place the cookie dough balls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving at least 2 inches between each cookie.
  12. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown around the edges.
  13. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  14. Enjoy your fresh-baked cookies!
