I am the cookie queen and can't wait to try these.  They look similar to one I make already.  Add a couple of tsps of cinnamon to give it a real cozy flavor!


I made these yesterday. If the recipe is correct as written, I would definitely cut back on the instant coffee granules. I used 3 Tablespoons and found the cookies to be a little bitter. Next time I'll use 1 1/2 Tablespoons. That will give it a nice mocha flavor without overpowering the cookie, in my opinion. (I'm a coffee lover, but not when it's bitter.) Other than that, it was a lovely chocolate cookie. I got about 65 cookies, using a #40 scoop.


Maybe the recipe should've said 5 tsp.  I used 2 Tbsp (6 tsp.) and it was a perfect mocha flavor.  I can't wait to share them at our teachers meeting tomorrow--get ready for a little zing!
