Mocha Crackle Cookies

Hello again! These cookies were exchanged at my work's cookie exchange event last Thursday. I really liked how they kept their shape very well (a nice dome look) after baking, and the "crackles" came out nicely too. The chocolate flavor depth was enhanced by the coffee granules, I thought, but you could omit the granules if you don't like/can't have the caffeine flavor (which is not overpowering at all). 
Hope you enjoy them too!
Mocha Crackle Cookies

·         ½ cup butter
·         5 oz unsweetened chocolate
·         1 Tbsp instant coffee granules

·         2 cups + 3 Tbsp AP flour

2.    In mixing bowl, combine eggs and salt. Add sugars. Stir in chocolate mixture; mix well. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to egg mixture to form a soft dough. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
