Chocolate Sugar Cookies

14 tbsp. butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
1 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 whole egg and 1 egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. instant coffee granules
about 1/2 cup sugar, either granulated or powdered (for rolling the dough balls before baking)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in the eggs and vanilla.    Fold in the remaining ingredients and mix until smooth.   Take teaspoons of the dough and roll into balls, then roll those in the granulated or powdered sugar.    Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 9-12 minutes.  When done the tops of the cookies will look dry and they will be covered with cracks.   Allow to cool on the pans about 8-10 minutes before moving to a rack to finish cooling.    Makes 4-5 dozen cookies, depending on size.
