Another recipe from the kitchen of our friend Margi Newkirk. Margi said she got this from some friends of theirs who were originally from Ireland. These cookies had an interesting twist in that they definitely pack a chocolate punch, but the hint of the coffee flavor finds it’s way through. At the time I couldn’t put my finger on the flavor, but seeing the recipe, it makes sense. The bottom of the pictured watermelon bowl was visible within no time. My kids were upset with their father. My stomach was in heaven!

Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 C. butter
1/2 C. shortening
1 egg
1 1/2 C. sugar
1 tsp. instant coffee dissolved in 1/4 C. water
1 tsp. vanilla
1 ¼ C. flour
1/2 C. cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

    There’s just something special about homemade cookies, especially chocolate chip cookies, so far as I’m concerned. It’s a great family activity, something even children can help with, and everyone loves eating the results.
