"I just love the speckled look the instant coffee gives these cookies, like good vanilla ice cream." --Danielle Antinozzi, 23, Rowlett, Texas

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a bowl, stir flour, baking soda, salt and coffee. In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter and both sugars until light, about 3 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla; scrape down sides of bowl as necessary.

Step 2

Add flour mixture to butter mixture and stir until just combined. Gently mix in espresso beans.

Step 3

Spoon dough by tablespoonfuls onto 2 ungreased baking sheets, spacing about 1 inch apart. Bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes, rotating sheets from top to bottom and front to back halfway through. Let stand 2 minutes, then remove cookies to a wire rack.

These cookies were a big hit over the holidays. They are a little hard, but if you dip them into your coffee or hot chocolate they are yummy! Don't eat to many because they will keep you awake.
