 A fun little ‘coffee’ package!  I will be giving one lucky person a coffee mug, a single serving packet of Spiced Chai Tea, a jar of French Vanilla powdered creamer, and two one-pot packs of coffee from the Baxters, the coffee shop where I work part time.  These are two of our regular-bodied coffees.  I’ll let you know at the end of the post how you can win this little goody bag of coffee stuff!

On to the cookies.  Life is just better with cookies…wouldn’t you agree?  These have got to be my favorite cookies I’ve ever made.  And I’ve made LOTS of cookies in my time.  In ‘theme’ with the giveaway…I made this yesterday…Mocha Jo Cookies.  I mean…what could be better?  Cookies and Coffee.  Together.  As One.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Scoop onto cookie sheets, placing them about two inches apart.  I use an ice cream type scoop, but if you don’t have that, just use a soup spoon.
