This recipe is from the brown eyed baker blog. The cookies have a big mocha flavor. The directions call for rolling the dough out and cutting the cookies wit a cookie cutter. To save time, I made an approx. 1"-2" wide log of the dough, refrigerated it for a couple of hours and then sliced the log into 1/4" rounds. The cookies were probably not as pretty as they would have been if I used a cookie cutter but for me it was worth the time saved. Be sure to leave space between the cookies on the cookie sheet. They do spread a little while cooking.
