Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe (sort of)

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoon crushed instant coffee crystals
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

Directions
Cream the butter with the sugars until fluffy.

Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract.

Combine the dry ingredients and beat into the butter mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop by large spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. I find 11 minutes works well in my oven

Makes 12 to 15 large cookies.
