hosted by Louise of Months of Edible Celebrations. Louise is celebrating her Blogoversary by throwing a Cookbook Party, and October being the National Cookbook Month! There's a whole list of food celebrations just for the month of October! I'm submitting this cookie recipe in honor of "National Cookie Month" straight from "Paula Deen Celebrates! Best Dishes and Best Wishes for the Best Times of Your Life"

Paula Deen says  "these are just down right delicious!"
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons instant coffee, powdered or freeze-dried
One 6-ounce bag chocolate chips (1 cup)
1/2 cup chopped pecans, lightly toasted

1. Preheat the over to 375F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer,cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and, using a spatula, stir together until they are completely blended. Stir in the instant coffee, chocolate chips, and pecans.
3. Drop by tablespoonfuls, 1 inch apart, onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake in batches for 11 minutes, until crisp on the bottom. (Reuse parchment paper for each batch.)
4. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to cool undisturbed for about 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rach to cool completely before storing in airtight tins or freezer bags.

I have a sneaky suspicion Paula Deen may just be right about these cookies being "down right delicious." I'm having my late afternoon coffee "as we speak" and I sure would love a nibble of one of those cookies, especially since I've added a shot of Kahlua to my coffee:)

Thanks for bringing them to the party Pam. And, Good Luck!!!

That is too funny Louise! I enjoy a late afternoon coffee as well. And.... Kahlua seems to find it's way in my coffee too. Especially since the cold weather has moved in. And as far as cookies go... I'm forever looking for cookie recipes since the hubby is a cookie monster.

Adding coffee flavor--what a great way to make chocolate chip cookies even more special!

And creme de cocoa is great in coffee too ;-)
