Heavenly Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I made these cookies for neighbor gifts this year. They are good with a definite coffee taste! I doubled this and it worked well in one bowl but trying to fold in all the walnuts and chocolate chips evenly was a job!
Justin LOVED them. I was trying to get a picture of the inside detail and he climbed onto the table to get a piece.

Heavenly Chocolate Chunk Cookies

3/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons instant coffee
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons self rising flour
(I used all purpose flour and added 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt)
1 pkg semisweet choc.mega morsels(I used milk chocolate chips)
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup walnuts, toasted
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 egg yolk

Combine butter & coffee in small saucepan. Cook over low heat until butter and coffee melt. Remove from heat and let cool to room temp. Combine butter mixture, sugar, egg, yolk, in a large bowl. Beat at med. speed until blended. Gradually add flour, beating at lowspeed. Stir in choc chips and walnuts. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake 14min at 325
