I used instant coffee granules in place of espresso powder and I used just regular dark roast coffee beans, coarsely ground as the topping. I also used vanilla sugar in place of the regular sugar for an extra added touch. These are amazing. I knew I couldn't lose with this recipe because I'm a big fan of both shortbread and coffee. FANTASTIC flavor! Thanks for sharing this!!!

Made this for my parents. I could not find the espresso beans in our area. They so loved this shortbread, not too sweet and no so much over powering coffee flavor. Perfect!

We enjoyed this shortbread recipe Sharon! I omitted the expresso beans and increased the vanilla to 1 tablespoon, I might increase the sugar slightly next time I make these, the cookies were not sweet enough for my family, the texture was great, a wonderful recipe for traditional shortbread, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten :)
