I've made this recipe many times because I used to subscribe to Taste of Home magazine. The chocolate flavored cookies turn out very cute and taste good, too. I don't use coffee because we don't "do" coffee. Instead, I use Roma. It's a coffee flavored drink. These are easy to make and look great on a Christmas cookie tray! Thanks for posting, Marie!
