Servings: 36
Categories: Chocolate / Cookies / Desserts / Frozen

1 1/4  cups  light brown sugar, packed
3/4  cup  shortening, butter flavored
2  tablespoons  brewed coffee, cold
1  teaspoon  vanilla extract
1    egg
1 3/4  cups  all-purpose flour
1  tablespoon  French roast coffee beans
    --finely ground
1  teaspoon  salt
3/4  teaspoon  baking soda
1 1/2  cups  semisweet chocolate chips
1/2  cup  milk chocolate chips
1/2  cup  walnuts, coarsely chopped
36    chocolate kisses, unwrapped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees; place sheets of foil on countertop for cooling cookies. Place the brown sugar, shortening, coffee and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Beat on medium speed of an electric mixer until blended. Add the egg; beat well. Combine the flour, ground coffee, salt and baking soda. Add to the shortening mixture; beat on low speed just until blended. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop the dough by rounded measuring tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake one baking sheet at a time for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly browned and just set. Do no overbake. Place 1 candy in the center of each cookie. Cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet. Remove the cookies to the foil to cool completely. Penny Halsey (ATBN65B).
