Neiman Marcus cookies

Weird name for a cookie,isn't it??If you haven't heard of the (in)famous cookie hoax email,then read this.
There are so many recipes of NM cookie all over the webworld.But I tried the recipe found in the Neiman Marcus website.The addition of espresso powder definetely is a treat for coffee lovers.

I made a few changes.I increased the amount of espresso coffee powder to 2tsp instead of  1 1/2 tsp because I wanted the espresso to dominate.
I reduced the baking time to 15 from 20 minutes but still  my cookies were crunchy.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened

1 cup light brown sugar

3 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 large egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1-3/4 cups all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder

1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
 
 
Method:
 
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cream the butter with the sugars using an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy (approximately 30 seconds)
Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract for another 30 seconds.
In a mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and beat into the butter mixture at low speed for about 15 seconds. Stir in the espresso coffee powder and chocolate chips.

 Using a 1 ounce scoop or a 2 tablespoon measure, drop cookie dough onto a greased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Gently press down on the dough with the back of a spoon to spread out into a 2 inch circle. Bake for about 15 minutes or until nicely browned around the edges.
