    These coffee cookies were delicious, with a deep rich flavor, they were crisp, tender, moist, chewy and very chocolately, with a hint of cinnamon. We loved these cookies and I will make these again. My dh loved the frosting, I prefer them plain. Into my keeper box this goes. Thanks for posting another winner CB.

    Excellent cookies, loved all the flavors. I made as written but only got 28 cookies. I did frost them by melting the chips and butter(instead of shortening) rather than dipping. DH ate 5 of them for dessert.

    I've spent this morning baking, can you think of anything better when everything is white outside? These cookies are a pure pleasure and how could they miss with coffee, chocolate and cinnamon! I used Splenda for the sugar and made a half recipe. This recipe is so worth making and if you enjoy mocha you're going to loved these a lot. :D

    A good butter cookie with a very delicate flavor. Did not have the chocolate/coffee/cinnamon kick I was hoping for, but if you like subtle light flavors this would be a good cookie recipe to choose.
    I absolutely adore anything mocha!! I'm trying to make cookies to freeze so that I don't have mass cookie chaos close to the holidays!! These are the best! I thought that the addition of the cinnamon, another dear favorite of mine,was a great idea. I'd have never thought of that. All around, a fabulous cookie!! Thanks Sue for a winner!
