Great cookies! I used instant espresso and my kids couldn't even taste the coffee flavor, so you could definately put a little more in if you want to give them a stronger coffee flavor. I would check the cookies at 12 minutes though, you really want to keep them chewy. I used these to make homemade ice cream sandwiches with coffee flavored ice cream and they were perfect!
