Heavenly Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Kim gave me a bag of these back in November and they were delish. I think the secret to the delightful flavor is the coffee. . .Thanks Kim!

Heavenly Chocolate Chunk Cookies

2 cups plus 2 tablespoons self rising flour

¾ cup margarine

2 tablespoons instant coffee granules

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

½ cup granulated white sugar

1 large egg

1 egg yolk

1 (11.5 oz.) package semisweet chocolate mega-morsels

1 cup walnut halves, toasted

Combine first 3 ingredients; stir well.

Combine butter and coffee granules in a small saucepan or skillet. Cook over medium-low heat until butter melts and coffee granules dissolve, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, and let cool to room temperature (don’t let butter resolidify).

Combine butter mixture, sugars egg, and egg yolk in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed of an electric mixer until blended. Gradually add flour mixture, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in mega-morsels and walnuts.

Drop dough be heaping tablespoonfuls 2” apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 325ยบ for 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool slightly on cookie sheets. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Variation: For holidays, substitute mega-morsels with red & green colored baking chips or plain M&M’s.
