What You'll Need

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, confectioners' sugar, and coffee granules; add butter and vanilla. With an electric mixer on low speed, beat until blended. Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips.
  3. Press dough into an ungreased 9-inch square pan; prick dough with a fork.
