        Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  In a small bowl, dissolve the instant
   espresso granules in water.  In a large mixer bowl, combine the coffee
   mixture, powdered sugar and butter. Beat on medium speed, scraping the bowl
   often, for 1 to 2 minutes until creamy.  Reduce the speed to low; add the
   flour and salt.  Continue beating, scraping the bowl often, for 1 to 2
   minutes until well mixed.
        By hand, stir in the toffee chips.  Shape heaping teaspoonfuls of
   dough into crescents, logs or 1-inch balls.
    Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheets.  Bake for 13 to 17 minutes, or until
   set but not brown.  Let stand for 1 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. If
   desired, roll the warm cookies in powdered sugar, or melt the chocolate
   chips and shortening together; dip the ends of the cooled cookies in the
   melted chocolate.
