Check the tower of coffee chocolate crispers in the first photo.  Now, check the cookies in the second picture.  This arrangement was not intentional.  As I added more cookies to the tower, it toppled.  Now, what’s significant about this is that not one cookie cracked, crumbled and broke!

Chewy crispers~~you get both of those palate pleasures when taking a bite, and you don’t have to fret that the cookie will shatter.  This creation just happened, not sure why since I have no science of pastries, but I’m sure my good friend Jenni at Pastry Chef Online can give me the low down~~she’s like my go-to Alton Brown!
Sweet Treat Coffee Chocolate Chewy Crispers

coffee chocolate crispers

Yield: About 4 dozen


  • Preheat oven to 325
  • ½ cup room temperature Crisco
  • ½ cup softened butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 tbl vanilla
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • 2 tbl finely ground dark coffee (I used ‘Sweet Treats’ from Coffee on the Porch—Camden, Maine.)
  • ½ cup chopped finely/ground 70% chocolate (I put mine in a food processor and pulsed.)
  • 1 1/3 cups self-rising flour


  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the Crisco, butter and sugar with a hand mixer until blonde and somewhat fluffy. 
  • Add in the eggs, vanilla, salt and baking soda and mix another 2-3 minutes.
  • Mix the cocoa, ground coffee and ground chocolate together and blend.  Add into the batter and mix well.  Sift in about half of the flour at a time and work into the batter. 
  • Put batter in a refrigerator about an hour to chill.
  • Using a small scoop, dollop onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  Leave about 3” between cookies because they will spread wide and flat when cooking. 
  • Bake in a preheated 325 oven about 9-11 minutes.  (Note: Cookies will still kinda look soft in the middle...that's o.k....they'll continue 'cooking' as they're cooling.)  
  • Remove and let cool.
