Not your everday chocolate chip cookie. This recipes adds brown sugar and coffee granules to the batter, mixes in rich chunks of semisweet chocolate, and finishes with a light dusting of flake salt. Are you drooling yet?

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2

Combine sugars and coffee granules in the bowl of a stand mixer. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until butter bubbles and begins to brown. Pour butter over sugar mixture; beat at medium-low speed for 2 minutes. Beat in vanilla and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Add eggs and egg yolk; beat until just combined.

Step 3

Whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and baking soda in a medium bowl. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture; mix at low speed until just combined. Stir in choc­olate. Refrigerate dough at least 1 hour.

Step 4

Scoop half of dough into 16 equal balls (about 1 1/2 tablespoons each) and place 8 balls, about 2 inches apart, onto each prepared baking sheet. Bake 8 minutes. Rotate pans; bake 6 to 7 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Sprinkle cookies evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt; let cool on baking sheets 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.
