Mmm Java Chocolate Chunk Cookies :)

Another snowy day yesterday. One of my top ten snowy day activities is baking! Around Christmas time my neighbor had given me this recipe for these awesome Java Chocolate Chunk cookies and I haven't had time to make them for myself till yesterday. The recipe makes about 4 dozen, give or take depending on how big or small you make them. Completely delish! enjoy!
Java Chocolate Chunk Cookies
¾ cup butter
2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
½ granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 egg yolk
1 (11.5) oz package semisweet chocolate chunks (I would have used a bit less.)
1 cup walnut halves, toasted


Combine butter and coffee granules in small saucepan. Cook over med.-low heat until
Butter melts and coffee disolves, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, and let set
Until room temperature. (don’t let it resolidify)
Combine flour,soda,and salt; stir well.
Combine butter mixture, sugars, egg, and egg yolk in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed
w/ electric mixer until blended.
Gradually add flour mixture, beating @ low speed until just blended. Stir in walnuts and
Chocolate chunks.
Drop dough by heaping teaspoons 2 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheets.
Bake @ 325 for 12-14 minutes.( more depending on oven) Let cool slightly on sheets; then
transfer unto wire rack to cool completely.
