We love this recipe at my house. I make it every Christmas. It is so quick and easy, and even non-cofffee lovers devour them!
Mmmmm.... coffee-y and not to sweet! I used pecans instead of walnuts as personal preference and a bit more cinnamon
Very easy and tasty cookie. try it your family and freinds will love them.
