• 1 cup butter, softened
• 1 cup white sugar
• 1 cup packed brown sugar
• 2 eggs
• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
**2 teaspoon instant coffee (dissolved in 3 teaspoon hot water)
• 3 cups all-purpose flour
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
**1 cup chopped walnuts or sliced almonds
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Add baking soda and dissolved coffee* to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and nuts*. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
3. Bake for about 7 – 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.
