Here is how to make and bake these coffee cookie recipe. You don't need an electric mixer for this recipe. No stand mixer or hand mixer needed. You do need two bowls, whisk, large baking sheet, and a rubber spatula!
The actual recipe is below in the recipe card.
STEP 1: Mix the dry ingredients. In a medium bowl or small bowl, sift the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon.
Using a blender or food processor, blend the instant coffee into a fine powder and add it to the dry ingredients.
STEP 2: Mix wet ingredients. In a large bowl, mix the melted butter (make sure it is cooled!), brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla extract, and eggs. Use a whisk to mix it together.
STEP 3: Add the flour mixture. Next, add the dry ingredients to the bowl and use a rubber spatula to mix it in. Then, add in the chocolate chips.
Let the batter rest while you preheat the oven.

Cool the cookies on a cooling rack.
Expert Baking Tips
- Flour- Make sure the flour is spooned and leveled. If you stick the measuring cup directly into the flour, it will compact the flour. Compacted flour can cause the cookies to not spread.
- If the cookies are spreading, make sure you are using parchment paper on the cookie sheet. If they are still spreading too much this could be the butter was too warm before adding the ingredients. If it still spreads too much, you chill the cookie dough balls for 10-15 minutes.
- If you live at high altitude, add an extra 1-2 Tablespoons of flour. This will help with the spread.
- The cookies should be slightly underdone, because they will continue to cook as they cool. This helps to make sure they have chewy centers.
Yes you can. Use a small cookie scoop to scoop 12 cookie dough balls per cookie sheet. Bake for 8-11 minutes.

Yes you can. However, I recommend making them into cookie dough balls first before chilling overnight. Make sure they come to room temperature before baking.
