Coffee Chip Cookies

"My daughter loves the subtle coffee flavor in these soft cookies," says Maurane Ramsey of Fort Wayne, Indiana. "Now that she's away at college, I send her goody boxes with these freshly baked treats inside. The recipe makes plenty for her to share with her friends."

    What I did to Jazz up this already great recipe is, I used three different kinds of chocolate chips. I also used brewed blue mountain Jamaica coffee. The result was fantastic!

    Don´t waste your time and ingredients to do this recipe. It sucks! IT was liquid at the end I only bake 10 cookies and they taste flour. NO TASTE OF COFFEE.. it taste like cardboard! really!! Don´t waste your time. I don´t recommend it!! I through it to the garbage. Better bake something with peanut butter and chocolate chips it is much better.

    I made a half batch for the two of us, cookies have a great flavor if youre a coffee lover. this cookie has a soft moist texture that holds up well after freezing.I added walnuts and a little salt to my batch. It's a keeper!
