Java Cream Drops

Corrie and I were debating what type of cookies to make; these were the perfect compromise. The coffee flavor is addicting! My only advice is to make sure the two types of dough are the same consistency so one side doesn’t spread more than the other (not like that happened to us or anything…).

Java Cream Drops

2 T. instant coffee granules

1 T. half-and-half cream (milk does work if you don’t have half-and-half!)

1 cup butter, softened

2/3 cup sugar

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups flour, divided

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 cup baking cocoa

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. In a small bowl, combine coffee granules and cream; set aside.

3. In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla, and reserve coffee mixture.

4. Combine 2 1/4 cups flour, baking soda, and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.

5. Divide dough in half. To one part, add the cocoa and walnuts and remaining flour. Stir chocolate chips into remaining dough.

6. To form cookies, place 1 tsp. of each dough on an ungreased baking sheet; lightly press doughs together. Repeat with remaining dough.

7. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Cool for 1 minute before removing from pans to wire racks.

Yield: 5 dozen cookies
