Coffee Maple Spritz

I like spritz cookies because they're easier to make than rolled cutouts but I can still be creative with different shapes and sizes. Feel free to substitute vanilla or rum extract for the maple flavoring. —Dierdre Cox, Kansas City, Missouri

    Can I used just plain instant coffee crystals for this recipe in place of the espresso? I do not wish to buy a jar/package of the espresso and use just one TBLS of it. We do not drink it. However, the cookies sound like something we would like.
