    This is fast becoming one of my family's favorite Christmas cookies! I will be making these for the third holiday in a row, and will have to hide some for myself before they are all gone!

    I love this recipe! I used Chocolate covered espresso beans, french roast coffee( never instant!) , rolled up in parchment paper and put in freezer overnight. Woke up and sliced what turned out to be crooked circles and when the cookies were still warm I stuck a chocolate cover espresso bean in the middle. LOVE!

    i intend to try these, but after reading the reviews i think i will use chocolate covered espresso beans, brewed coffee, and, of course, vanilla. mmmmmmm

    I had some leftover dough, so I added a little more sugar, some milk chocolate chips, and vanilla extract. Now, they are much tastier. I suspect just adding vanilla or coffee extract might be what this recipe needs.

    These tasted bland to me. I even tried dipping them in chocolate. I don't know if they weren't sweet enough or if adding coffee extract would help.

    Cookiesgalore, I have some shortbread cookie recipes that use rice flour. I think this recipe will adapt well to that.

    I have found instant espresso powder in small to large jars online at javacabana. They use to have free shipping, I'm assuming they still do? I couldn't find it at ANY local grocery stores. However, a year after I ordered it online, I found it at trader joes, whole foods market, and another natural food store, but I found it to be cheaper online. Hope this helps:-)
