These cookies taste really good! They do have a strong coffee taste as you can imagine, but I love coffee so I love these. I did have some trouble with the dough, however. It was awfully crumbly. I did chill it for an hour, but that didn't matter. I think that 2 cups of flour might be enough. Also, the coffee crystals didn't adhere very well when I rolled the cookie into them. That might have had something to do with the dough being too dry. I also wished that I could have found the Hugs, but I had to use the almond ones. I would have swirled the chocolate as I'm sure they would look so pretty that way. The finished product tastes so wonderful. This is a great alternative to the peanut butter blossom cookies for those who love coffee!
