Alix,

This is a great recipe. I hope you don't mind but I made a change to it. One simple ingredient made it an entirely different cookie. By adding 1/4C of Folgers instant coffee and optionally omitting the chocolate chips you now have a Cafe' Mocha cookie. I just finished the first batch and the whole kitchen smells like a French Bistro The cookies taste magnificent!!!!!

Hey Home Chef, did you just add the instant coffee dry or did you add some liquid to dissolve it? The instant coffee I have is sort of granular and I am not sure if I should dissolve it or maybe buzz it in the food processor. Suggestions?

I just left it alone. Most of the instant will disolve in the mixing process as well as the baking process. However, you may notice a vaery faint crunch when eating. Kinda like a chocolate covered coffee bean.
