- Sift dry ingredients through a colander to separate the chocolate chips from other ingredients.
- Beat 1 cup of unsalted butter or margarine or butter flavored Crisco in a medium bowl.
- Dissolve the coffee in 2 tablespoons hot water.

- In a small bowl, beat 1 egg with 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

- Drop teaspoonsful of batter, spaced well apart, (or roll into balls) onto a greased cookie sheet.
- The cookie yield is approximate as I always make large cookies.

i made these tonight, they were pretty good! I did modify the recipe and use applesauce instead of butter because I am on a diet, which changed the texture (and taste im sure) a bit. I might put a little less coffee in next time tho, i thought it was a bit strong, could have just been the blend I was using tho.
The cookies themselves were very good. Crisp with good chocolate chip flavor in a background of coffee. I was afraid the coffee flavor would be too intense because the cookie batter was so dark, but I was wrong. I baked them at 350 for about 14 minutes. The reason I dropped a star was because there was no way that a batch would fit inside a quart jar. And if I had added up the ingredients ahead of time, I would have realized it. (5 and 1/3 cups dry ingredients) Make this recipe for the yummy flavor, not to put in a jar!
