When I was thinking about posting a cookie recipe, I thought to myself, “But there are so many cookie recipes out there…What is going to make another one worth trying?”
- Cue a Friday night of stress/boredom baking and a desire to try something different.
- Enter Double Espresso Samoa Cookies.
- Listen, I like the classics like peanut butter, chocolate chip, and the like, but I can’t leave things alone. (See every other post on this blog for proof.) So I took my all-time favorite and go-to cookie recipe from my food blogger crush, Jess, and trash it up with some frozen Girl Scout cookies.
And I never looked back.
These cookies have a deep chocolate flavor like none other I’ve ever made. I know it sounds dramatic, but it’s TRUE. That little 1/2 teaspoon of coffee grounds makes all the difference. And the espresso chocolate chips, which were a seasonal item I found at Aldi (how could I say no?), added to this depth of flavor even more. The crushed Samoas add a caramelly/coconutty dimension. And that sea salt. That sea salt, tho.
Ashley was on to something when she created this last Christmas. So look out cookie exchange, because these cookies are about to blow your minds.
