First off - AWESOME taste!! Made this recipe last night after trying another coffee bar recipe on this site that I didn't care for. This recipe was by far way, way better. Because I am making these for a public function I followed other reviewers suggestions and: added 1/8 c. instant coffee granules to the flour mixture, cut down the butter and sugar to 3/4 c., upped the vanilla to 2 t. and omitted the nuts. I know, I know, that's not the true recipe then...however, whether you do that or not may not really change the recipe taste that much so take that for what it's worth.
Anyway...I used the chocolate chips on the top and the only problem I had was after it cooled overnight and I went to cut these, the chocolate delaminated from the cookie base :( Not sure why but I am going to try this recipe again and melt the choc chips in a separate container first and add a teaspoon of corn syrup and then spread it. Maybe that will help this problem. I also like to add a bit of butterscotch chips to this kind of topping since it gives it a whole new flavor if you want to change it up a bit :) The batter is not exactly cookie dough consistency since it is sticky but it does work. Oh, and I used a glass dish. When I make it again I will use foil to line the pan so I can lift it out of the pan and then I can cut it easier. Stay tuned...
