Nice & Easy Cookies

Now here is a quick and easy cookie recipe for when time short.  It's quick, easy, made with ingredients you probably have on hand, and really quite yummy!  I had been thinking the last few days about what kind of cookie I could make that I had not made in a long time. This fit the bill and was pretty quick to boot.  It is a little different, but not so much so that you'll have to worry if some kids won't like them. They are pretty mainstream yummy....and the coffee flavour in them is really very subtle.  It makes a nice soft almost 'cake' like cookie.
Coffee N Chip Pan Cookies
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup coffee, (cold)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F  Line 11X17 inch pan with foil and spray with PAM.  Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg, vanilla and cold coffee. Next beat in baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and finally the flour.  Stir in chocolate chips and nuts if desired.  Spread dough evenly in pan.  Bake 15 minutes until cookie springs back when touched in the center of the pan.  Remove from oven and cool on wire rack.  Slice when cool and store in sealed container.
