So, these are super simple and easy to make and if you like coffee, you will love these cookies. Since it's been so long since I've had one I can't quite remember if they are like the Whole Foods cookies but they are darn good. :)
I could not find any instant coffee powder in my grocery store except for this one. I was a bit skeptical but it was great in the cookie. (Oh and I got decaf since I was serving them after dinner, I didn't want to keep everyone up!)
White Chocolate Coffee Cookies

In a small bowl, beat egg, milk and vanilla extract together and gradually add to the butter/sugar mixture.
In another bowl, whisk together the flour, coffee powder, cinnamon, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
Add the flour mixture into butter/sugar mixture and mix until combined

Bake until cookie are golden at the edges, about 9-12 minutes.
Cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Sidenote: My favorite tool when making cookies is the cookie scoop. It was one of those things that I put off buying forever because I was like "do I really need it?" but now that I have it, I can't imagine not having it when I bake. The cookies all come out about the same size and I think the texture of the cookie even turns out better. It's also great to use when scooping muffin or cupcake batter into the tins. I love multi-purpose tools! This OXO Scoop one is the one I use.
