These Southern Walnut Chocolate Chip cookies are chewy around the outside with a deliciously soft center. The addition of the instant coffee just bumps up the flavors giving them a very unique taste. Because these chocolate chip cookies will instantly become a favorite they won’t be hanging around very long. My favorite way to make these cookies is to only bake a couple dozen and then freeze the remaining cookie dough to be baked at a later date.
