Chocolate Coffee Cookies

"These are the best and one of my favorite cookie recipes, and I have made my share of many recipes over the years but have always come back time after time to make these cookies, I just love the coffee and chocolate taste! --- you may substitute 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla for the maple extract :)"

    Another Kittencal gem! These were spectacular and I'm already addicted. My husband loves coffee so I'm sure he's going to be asking for these very often now.

    These are good cookies and people like them but they're not like your Delicious Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars. Those are INCREDIBLE and everyone raved about them. The coffee taste was nice in the cookies but they dried out fairly quickly and lost their wonderful texture. Still a good cookie though. I'm so glad you share your recipes!

    My cookies baked up flat, but had the just right slightly crisp, mostly chewy texture. I did use maple extract and in combination with the coffee and chocolate--well, rich flavor is an understatement. I did not add the walnuts, but will do so next time, just to counter-balance all that richness. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    Yum! This made some really tasty (although quite flat) cookies. I used the vanilla extract and definitely used the nuts. Very delicious!

    i took 1 of the poster's suggestion and substituted the crisco with vegetable oil, eliminated the maple extract, switched choco chips with almond roca hunks and replaced walnuts with almonds. unfortunately, it seemed super oily, and baking at 350 for 20 minutes was still giving me soggy, undercooked cookies. so i ended up having to crank the oven up to 400 degrees and baked for 10 minutes. This gave me really crispy cookies. In hindsight, i prolly should've reduced the amount of veggie oil i added. >.< It smells phenomenal while baking + family raved. So give this recipe a whirl, what've you got to lose?

    great cookie recipe. i had to make a few subs for what i had available...but i dont think it changed the final product that much. i used oil in place of the shortening, and vanilla extract in place of the maple. i didnt have instant coffee granuales but did have some superior brand (what wawa uses) instant cappuchino mix so i added 2TB of that. they came out a bit darker brown than in the photo but the taste is great. a perfect cookie texture of crispy on the edges but chewey. the combo of coffee and chocolate was also very very good. i will certainly be baking these again and try using the instant granuales.

    OMG, K, these little cookies are wonderful! Super-Duper easy to mix up and bake, and they came out soft and full of choccie flavor! YUM! I did omit the walnuts, and used vanilla instead of maple flavoring. Excellent, Hon, thanks for posting!
