Yummy! I love these little cookies. I made them pretty much as directed, but I had to add about a 1/4 C more flour to be able to roll them into balls. No matter, I tinker with most recipes so this was a very minor adjustment. The coffee lovers in my house loved these, the coffee flavor is well pronounced. Thank you for sharing this keeper of a recipe!

I made a half serve and got 21 little morsels of goodness for the DS to take to his music recreation group were they were enjoyed. I baked at 165C fan forced for 15 minutes and they were just right. I slightly flattened 10 of them and left the other 11 I did as round balls. Thank you Mom2Rose, made for the Aussie/Kiwi Swap October 2009.
