These coffee cookies were delicious, with a deep rich flavor, they were crisp, tender, moist, chewy and very chocolately, with a hint of cinnamon. We loved these cookies and I will make these again. My dh loved the frosting, I prefer them plain. Into my keeper box this goes. Thanks for posting another winner CB.

Excellent cookies, loved all the flavors. I made as written but only got 28 cookies. I did frost them by melting the chips and butter(instead of shortening) rather than dipping. DH ate 5 of them for dessert.

I've spent this morning baking, can you think of anything better when everything is white outside? These cookies are a pure pleasure and how could they miss with coffee, chocolate and cinnamon! I used Splenda for the sugar and made a half recipe. This recipe is so worth making and if you enjoy mocha you're going to loved these a lot. :D
