Recipe Comments & Reviews

This cookie was a hit at the annual cookie contest & cookie exchange. I will be baking these cookies again.
Being asked for a recipe is the ultimate compliment for me. and I was asked for this recipe by four people. Woohoo!!!
First time I made these, I would have given this recipe 5 stars. I just made 2 batches yesterday, and they were terrible. Even my grandkids said not to make them again. I followed the directions as written and they were not as good as the 1st time I made them. Have no idea what happened. Every cookie I have made from this site has been a winner for me.
If you are a "coffee" lover these are the cookies for you. Very nice blend of flavors. I particulary liked the sugar that they are rolled in before baking. After baking the sugar gives the soft cookies a bit of a crunch and added sweetness. These are my new favorite cookies!
Very good for bake sales or special occasions.
