Our first Cookie Exchange recipe is my all time favorite cookie. The Mocha Jo Cookie. I love chocolate. I love coffee. Put them together with a few other ingredients and you have the blissful Mocha Jo Cookie.
MOCHA JO COOKIES
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp. instant coffee powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
12 oz bag semisweet chocolate chinks (about 2 cups)
Coffee Drizzle (see recipe below)
Heat oven to 350. Beat sugars, butter and egg in large bowl on medium speed, until creamy. Add in flour, coffee powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chunks. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown and edges are set. Cool 2-3 minutes on pan, then remove to wire racks to cool completely. Drizzle with coffee drizzle.
1/2 tsp. instant coffee powder
3 tsp. water
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Dissolve coffee powder in water in small bowl. Stir in powdered sugar until smooth and thin enough to drizzle.
