Coffee Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips

I was in the mood to make some cookies the other week so I raided the cabinets to see what I could find.  I had lots of coffee granules left over from making my mother in law's Vanilla Mocha Trifle Cake and thought that might make a great addition to our favorite cookie recipe!  

We ended up with some very flavorful, chewy cookies that everyone adored.  


2 sticks butter, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cups peanut butter
2 Tablespoons milk
2 Tablespoons vanilla
3 Tablespoons decaf instant coffee granules
3 eggs
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 12 ounce bag semi- sweet chocolate chips

To make cookies:

Preheat oven to 350 and prepare cookie sheets with parchment paper. 

In the stand mixer combined the butter, sugars, peanut butter, milk, vanilla, coffee granules and egg.  In a small bowl combined the flour, baking soda and salt and then slowly added it to the wet ingredients mixing until everything is nicely combined. 

Add in the chips using a spatula and then scoop heaping teaspoons of batter onto the cookie sheet; making sure to place them a few inches apart since they'll spread out while cooking.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges are lightly golden brown.  Let them cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes then move to a wire rack.  

Serve and enjoy!
