Café Con Leche Chocolate Chunk Cookies taste like a luscious coffee with creamy milk, and a chocolate chunk cookie -- all mixed into one divine dessert. These are delightful after dinner, for a fantastic afternoon snack, or an amazing breakfast treat.
*Please note that the dough should be made the night before you plan to bake the cookies.
*Makes about 4 dozen
Use a 1½-inch cookie scoop, a teaspoon, or your hands to shape balls of dough, placing them on the parchment-lined baking sheet as you go. They can be almost touching and you will fill the sheet completely. Cover the sheet tightly with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator overnight.
I love how these cookies bake the day after being refrigerated -- but if you're pressed for time, I promise you, they'll still be delicious if you bake the batter straight away.
Please do not use instant coffee! The final flavor and texture of the cookies won't be the same if you do!
These cookies top off any meal off perfectly, and would be a lovely addition to a dessert party!
Oh, and in case you hadn't sorted it out, Café con Leche translates to coffee with milk!
