Coffeehouse Caramel-Dark Chocolate-Latte Cookie

These taste like my favorite coffee house drink in cookie form. They're crispy outside, but soft in the middle. —Angela Spengler, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania

    These are SOOOO good! They were wonderful warm. Tasted like a rich chocolate chip cookie. When they cooled down, the coffee flavor was a little more obvious but not overwhelming. I used instant espresso because that’s what I had. My husband told me several times how much he loved them. These will be at the top of my recipe collection!!

    The dough was so dry it wouldn't form to a cookie shape. I followed the recipe to a T too. The first pan came out as hard mounds so I increased the butter and that helped somewhat. I won't make them again.

    This is a fantastic re-invention of a classic chocolate chip cookie. The caramel sauce and instant coffee give them such a rich flavor. The coffee is subtle enough so that it's not overpowering, but distinct enough that you know it's there. These are perfectly different. I'm definitely making these again!
