Coffee Bean Cookies

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.

I got the original recipe from here after finding it on pinterest

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!
