My friends named these cookies Mocha-Choco Latte "Will You Love Me Forever" Cookies, due to the fact that they would be sending them to their loved ones in the military overseas... thought it was sweet!
1 cup butter
1 1/4 cup piloncillo, grated (you can also use dark brown sugar)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon Mexican vanilla
2 teaspoons instant espresso coffee, Bustelo brand
2 cups flour
1 cup uncooked oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated Mexican cinnamon
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat until melted.Remove from heat. Add the piloncillo(or brown sugar), granulated sugar and instant espresso and stir until well combined and smooth. Chill the mixture for 10 minutes.
2. Remove form refrigerator and stir in egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Add the flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and mix together. Stir in the white and dark chocolate chips.
3. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll by hand 30 small-sized balls or use a scoop, and place on lined cookie sheets. Chill for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 325º F. Remove cookies from refrigerator and bake for 13 to 15 minutes, or until edges brown slightly.
Note: If you would like, you could sprinkle the tops of cookies with a mixture of 3 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon instant espresso and 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon powder. I sprinkled each cookie as soon as they came out of the oven.
Note: You can make any substitutions that you may need to make on some of the specialty foods I used in this recipe, for example, the piloncillo sugar, the Mexican cinnamon, Mexican vanilla and Bustelo-brand coffee. I have been fortunate to be able to have these items in my pantry on this day. You can use other general-market brands.
