Coffee Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oh, baking, how I missed thee. After a *very* extended hiatus, I've finally gotten some time to start baking again. I checked in with the Tuesdays with Dorie group, and grabbed the closest recipe to date. It was chocolate chip cookies, so I modified it a bit (with Dorie's help, via her suggestions) and baked a batch. The host this week was Kait of Kait’s Plate.

I added 1/3 of a cup of unsweetened cocoa powder to the dry ingredients, and used coffee extract instead of vanilla extract as a finishing touch. I also added an excess of salt (I love salty chocolate cookies, ever since Dorie's World Peace cookies) as a little touch at the end.

I'm looking forward to getting into the swing of baking again, and hopefully having time to post longer entries soon.
