You’ll be remembered for these cookies when you serve them for a morning coffee or at a gathering.  Melted chips drizzled on top make them look fancy, but they’re so easy to make.

1 cup butter, softened

½ cup packed brown sugar

 ¼ cup sugar

2 Tbsp. instant coffee granules

In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugars and coffee granules until light and fluffy.  Combine flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture.
