      These are the cookies that you are supposed to make to go into the project box you made over in Marilyn's column. You know the one with coffee beans on top. Mocha, coffee beans, you get it right? Anyhow these taste really great and will make a great gift. Make a double batch so you can keep some for yourself.

  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Shortening
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Instant Coffee Granules
  • 3/4 Cup Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Nuts (optional)

Mix all the ingredients together.
Drop a rounded Tablespoon of mix onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 8 - 10 minutes.
Make a basic chocolate butter cream frosting and add 1 Tablespoon of Instant Coffee Granules.
Make a cookie sandwich by spreading the frosting on the flat side of one cookie and putting another cookie on top.
