Ingredients

2 tsp
instant coffee powder
1 tsp
water, warm
1/2 stick
butter, softened
3/4 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1 large
egg
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
cinnamon
1/4 tsp
ground nutmeg
1/3 c
chocolate candy sprinkles

Step-By-Step

1Dissolve instant coffee in warm water. Beat butter and brown sugar in large bowl.
2Add egg, vanilla, and coffee to sugar mixture, until throughly mixed.
3Mix in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
4Divide dought into 2 equal parts. Shape each half into 7-inch long roll by 1/2 inch wide (I generally use the width of 2 fingers).
5Use a sheet either of Parchment Paper or Wax Paper for each roll of dough.
6Roll dough (it will be sticky though, may use a little extra flour for rolling dough) into chocolate sprinkles, pressing lightly.
7Wrap tightly. Refrigerate at least 1-1/2 hours or more.
8Pull cookie dough out of refrigerator. Heat oven to 375 F.
9Cut cookie dough roll into 1/4-inch slices.
10Place slices 1/2 inch apart on ungreased baking sheet or stoneware.
11Bake 6 to 9 minutes or until set. Cool on Rack.
12BAKER'S NOTE: May substitute Starbucks Mocha powder, instead of instant coffee. Added Bonus - add Mini-Chocolate Chips to dough. YUM!
13BAKER'S NOTE: Instead of rolling dough into a log, use a Small Scoop (1 T measurement) and scooping your cookie dough into balls, then roll into chocolate sprinkles. May take 2 or 3 minutes more to bake though! Enjoy!! :)
