From a 2005 Cookies magazine, these are great cookies, better after they sit for at least a day!

These cookies are delicious but don't pack much coffee flavor, and I had to make some adjustments for them to come out properly. Plus I would suggest calling them "Coffee Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies", since this title better represents them. I was concerned they wouldn't raise enough due to the small amount of baking soda the recipe called for, so I increased the amount to 1 tsp. instead of 1/4 tsp. I also needed to add a substantial amount of flour (3 1/2 cups instead of 2 2/3 cups), as I was afraid the cookies would spread too much and burn. Otherwise, they turned out beautifully buttery and moist with crispy golden edges. Thank you for a lovely cookie recipe! (Made for SUMMER COMFORT CAFE 2009)
