Coffee cookies made with browned butter and Turkish coffee. Chewy on the inside and a little crispy on the outside.



  • 3/4 cups (170g) unsalted butter, browned and cooled
  • 1 cup (200g) packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup (67g) white sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Turkish coffee
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3.5 ounces (100g) dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips for topping


  1. Melt the butter in a medium-sized saucepan over low/medium low heat. Once it melts, bring the heat to medium, keep stirring and scraping the sides constantly until the butter begins to turn golden brown. You will feel a nutty aroma. Remove from the heat and let it cool.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the cooled brown butter and sugars. Beat until mixed together. Add in the eggs and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, Turkish coffee, cornstarch, salt and baking soda. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet until everything comes together. 
  4. Fold in the chopped chocolate. Do not over mix.
  5. Chill the cookie dough for 30 minutes. (Don’t skip this).
  6. Preheat the oven to 350°F/180C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  7. Scoop by one tablespoon- sized portions. Roll the dough into balls. Put them 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Bake them for 11 minutes, or until the edges are just golden brown. They will be quite soft. Top with extra chocolate chips when they are still hot.
  9. Let them cool for a minute and then sprinkle flaky sea salt over each. Let them keep cooling on the baking sheet.
