One of my most requested desserts are my Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I have made this recipe for years and until yesterday never changed a thing.  When I was sipping one of my many cups of coffee while creating my menu for the week I thought adding coffee to my chocolate chip cookies would be a great addition.  Coffee and Chocolate Chip Cookies all combined in to one delicious cookie, my dream come true!
 
These cookies are ridiculously good, seriously!  I am torn between what version I like better, the original or the new version with coffee.  I guess I might have to make the original version again to compare.  Any excuse to make another batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies.
 
The coffee version is not overpowering of coffee flavor, but they are tasty.  It is just a nice hint of coffee and the coffee intensifies the chocolate.
 
My next challenge.  Creating a fat free or low fat version of these cookies!  In the meantime, I will just enjoy a few of these and pretend there are no calories in them!
