New and improved Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies

{Old Post from 2010 with pictures updated}

Several people may disagree with this statement but my opinion is that the best cookie ever is a chocolate chip cookie.  There are so many recipes out there for chocolate chip cookies and this is one recipe that I have heard about but have not tried till now.  This is the original recipe from the Neiman Marcus website.  Try to find the instant espresso coffee powder because it will definitely make the flavor pop more than just regular instant coffee.

What is your favorite type of cookie and when was the last time you made it?  I have been craving chocolate chip cookies for a while now and decided that it was time to bring them back to AZB Kitchen.

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


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
1-1/2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee powder
1-1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


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 20 minutes or until nicely browned around the edges. Bake a little longer for a crispier cookie.

    I have had this recipe for a while and never cared to try it. They look delish and I bet the addition of the espresso powder makes them even more addicting :-)
