Triple Chocolate Drops Cookie Recipe

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee powder (not granules)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 6 ounces chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

White Chocolate Glaze

  • 1 pound white chocolate
  • 1/2 cup half & half, light cream, or crème de cacao
  • about 1/2 cup grated semisweet chocolate
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugars, instant coffee and vanilla until light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. Beat in melted chocolate.
  5. Stir in flour mixture 1/2 cup at a time, blending well after each addition.
  6. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts (if using).
  7. Cover cookie dough and freeze or refrigerate until very firm, 1 to 4 hours.
  8. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or grease cookie sheets.
  9. Divide dough into sixths and refrigerate all but one portion.
  10. With floured hands, roll slightly rounded teaspoons of dough into 1-inch balls.
  11. Place balls about 1 inch apart onto prepared cookie sheets.
  12. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes, or just until cookies are barely brown on the bottom. Be sure not to overbake - cookies will seem very soft, but will firm as they cool.
