Mocha Chunk Cookies

I wanted to include a photo of the cookies with this recipe, but the cookies didn't last long. I made them one afternoon while the boys were out ice skating - when they came in, a pile disappeared. Then M. came home - and a bigger pile disappeared. And . . . you get the point. Needless to say, this is a new recipe that will definitely become an old recipe.

Mocha Chunk Cookies

3/4 C. butter (I used margarine)
2 tabl. instant coffee granules
2 C. plus 2 tabl. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 pkg. semisweet chocolate chunks

Combine butter and coffee in a small saucepan; cook over low heat until butter melts and coffee is dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature (mine wasn't that cool). Combine flour, baking soda, salt; set aside. Combine butter mixture, sugars, egg and egg yolk. Beat at medium speed until blended. Gradually add the flour mixture, beating at low until blended. Stir in chocolate chunks. Drop by tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 325 for 12-14 minutes.
