Today was Mrs. Fountain's birthday and since she loves coffee, I wanted to make these for her.
The extras were also a hit with the other teachers and students.
Coffee Bean Cookies
1 cup butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup dark-chocolate covered coffee beans
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. Beat butter with an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy; add sugars and beat well. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well.
2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; add to butter mixture. Stir in chocolate covered coffee beans and semisweet chips.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drop dough by the heaping teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden.
Enjoy with a tall glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee!
