Adopted in the Great RecipeZaar Adoption of 2005. Hope to make and update soon. Original poster's comments: Double the size and killer chocolate taste, these rich twice-baked cocoa cookies are just as yummy with a glass of cold milk as with a cup of joe.

Terrific recipe! Made these for Thanksgiving with the ILs and they were a big hit. I packed them up and sent them home as gifts with them too. The espresso is a very important ingredient, as it really points up the chocolate flavor--so don't leave it out! Loved these!
