These were wonderful!! I served them at a gathering of women that included a prefessional caterer, a banquet and catering manager at a resort, and a professional pastry chef (gee, no pressure THERE!) They all asked for the recipe and complemented the flavor and texture. What a great complement!
great cookie, I love coffee and chocolate, has a lovely crunch to it.
These wonderful cookies will get made again soon to go on my Christmas cookie platters. Two changes were made....I used butter flavored shortening instead of butter. Butter or margarine seem to make many cookies spread more than shortening and I didn't want that. The other change was making smaller cookies...one heaping teaspoonful rather than the one tablespoon called for in the recipe. I baked them on an oiled cookie sheet for about 15 minutes and they were perfect. A good recipe!
