These were are very nice cookie and will definitely go on my "make again" list. I did not follow the recipe exactly as listed because I do not use shortening in my baking. I used butter instead. I think I will play with the quantities of spices and coffee to see if I can intensify the flavours without making them too overpowering. Don't get me wrong; the recipe is very good as is. I just like tinkering. Made for Comfort Cafe tag game.
