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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Dissolve instant coffee in warm water. Beat butter and brown sugar in large bowl.
2
Add egg, vanilla, and coffee to sugar mixture, until throughly mixed.
3
Mix in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
4
Divide 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).
5
Use a sheet either of Parchment Paper or Wax Paper for each roll of dough.
6
Roll dough (it will be sticky though, may use a little extra flour for rolling dough) into chocolate sprinkles, pressing lightly.
7
Wrap tightly. Refrigerate at least 1-1/2 hours or more.
8
Pull cookie dough out of refrigerator. Heat oven to 375 F.
9
Cut cookie dough roll into 1/4-inch slices.
10
Place slices 1/2 inch apart on ungreased baking sheet or stoneware.
11
Bake 6 to 9 minutes or until set. Cool on Rack.
12
BAKER'S NOTE: May substitute Starbucks Mocha powder, instead of instant coffee. Added Bonus - add Mini-Chocolate Chips to dough. YUM!
13
BAKER'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!! :)
