Friday Food: Mocha Chip Cookies

More cookies. Hmmm...maybe it's time for me to admit that I have more recipes for sweets than I do for anything good for you. This recipe is from my favorite cookie cookbook from Mrs. Fields. All the recipes I've tried from that cookbook have been yummy and yummier than other recipes I may have tried for similar cookies. For you coffee lovers out there, these have a slight coffee flavor and a jolt of caffeine if you don't use decaf. Enjoy!

Mocha Chip Cookies

2 tsp instant coffee crystals
2 tsp Kahlua
1 cup salted butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
In a small bowl, dissolve coffee crystals in Kahlua and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix butter and sugars to form grainy paste. Add eggs and dissolved coffee crystals and mix until smooth.
Add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and chocolate chips and mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake for 23-25 minutes. Immediately transfer cookies to wire racks.
