These are similar to a chocolate chip cookie but has a slight coffee taste (not overpowering), white chips instead of chocolate and little crunchy bits of toffee. If you only bake them about 11-12 minutes they remain soft; if you like a crunchier cookie, bake about 14-16 minutes (depends if you're a coffee dipper or not).
Ingredients: 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1 cup shortening, 3 eggs, 1 tablespoon vanilla, 2 teaspoons instant coffee (dry), 1 teaspoon baking soda, 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, 1 cup vanilla chips, 1 cup toffee bits (you can buy these in a bag or just crush one or two Heath bars into small pieces).
Instructions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In large mixing bowl, combine sugars and shortening; beat until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add flour, coffee and baking soda until thoroughly incorporated. By hand, stir in vanilla chips and toffee bits.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 11-12 minutes for chewy cookies; 14-16 minutes for crisp cookies.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
