This is a 10-star cookie for sure. They turned out perfectly and we loved the coffee icing which is an excellent compliment to the cocoa. Perfect in every way. I highly recommend this recipe to everyone. Thanks for sharing these gems, Just Call Me Martha, can't wait to make them again.

These were fantastic cookies, very buttery and rich. I made them without using the cocoa, so the buttery taste would be more noticable, and I grinded the walnits very fine, topped them of with a thin layer of frosting. These are an excellent cookie, thanks Martha for sharing. KC :)
