Cappuccino Royales

My grandmother made these cookies after copying the recipe from a cookbook we had at our house. They are a very nice cookie - plenty of chocolate flavor, plenty sweet, with just a hint of coffee flavor! They also have a very nice texture and appearance. They are great with milk or a cup of coffee.
Cappuccino Royales
1 cup (two sticks) butter or hard margarine, melted
2 Tablespoons instant coffee powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups granulated (white) sugar, plus extra for rolling
2 large eggs, lighlty beaten
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
2 3/4 cups all-purpose (plain) flour

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or line cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, mix the butter, coffee and vanilla. Stir in the sugar, then the eggs. Add the soda and chips. Mix in the flour in three additions. Roll the dough into walnut-sized balls and roll in granulated sugar, if desired. Place on prepared cookie sheets and flatten gently with the palm of your hand. Bake for 9-11 minutes, until almost set. Let cool for two minutes, then transfer from the cookie sheet to cool completely. 
Makes approximately 6 to 7 dozen cookies. Recipe is easily halved or doubled.
