Satarra’s amazing chocolate chip cookies

My parents would always say that it wasn’t Christmas until I made my amazing chocolate chip cookies. I originally came up with this recipe by accident. I mean most people wouldn’t think of adding coffee to a chocolate chip cookie recipe, but I did it because I hated the flavor of the coffee by itself and I needed a way to keep myself awake while studying during the long winter nights. Little did I know, it was going to be the start of a new family tradition.

I first made these cookies in the winter of 2016. I remember when my first batch came out, I let it cool down while I was worked on a school assignment. 20 minutes later, I took my first bite, and I thought I was in heaven. I couldn’t believe what I had created. I found the perfect recipe for chocolate chip cookies.

The next day, I made another batch of the cookies and shared them with the family. They loved it and that’s when the tradition started. Every time I’m home, I bake my amazing chocolate chip cookies and as a family we enjoy them with tea.


The Secret ingredient

Coffee and chocolate have always been a good combination. While the jolt of caffeine might be what you need, the chocolate and soft dough are even more addictive.
