  1. Preheat the oven to 180c and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy, for about 20 seconds.
  3. Add the sugar, and beat for another 30 seconds. The mixture will turn a pale colour and be fluffy.
  4. Next, add the egg yolk and the insides from the vanilla bean, and beat until just combined.
  5. Whisk together the flour, salt, espresso powder, baking soda and baking powder in a separate bowl.
  6. Sprinkle the flour on top of the butter mixture, and beat just until combined.
  7. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  8. Scoop the dough into 12 dough balls, and space them evenly on the baking tray.
  9. Bake for 8-10 minutes, removing the cookies from the oven when the edges just start to turn golden brown.
  10. Let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for 1 minute before moving them to a wire rack to cool.
  11. Enjoy!
