    my son loves these cookies
    This is one of my best cookie recipes and the grandkids love them.
    they were the best cookies ive ever had
    First recipe I attempted from this site, and those cookies were pretty tasty. It doesn't hurt to tone down the butter a bit, or make your coffee/espresso a bit stronger, but otherwise these instructions are amazing.
    The batter was a little too thin, but the taste was pretty good
    These are very good. Definately a more grown-up taste for a kid's favorite. I will make these again.
    My whole family love it! It's easy to do, and it's great for a gift as well. I know that from now on, it will be part of my favorites recipes.
    There is no mocha flavor, and the batter smelled and tasted better than the cookies were! The nutmeg over-powers all other flavors. The cookies were OK, but I wouldn't make them again. Maybe without the nutmeg they would taste better.
    These cookies are amazing..... Not only is the recipe great but I also grated fresh nutmeg. I really feel that made a huge difference, never again will I use already jarred nutmeg. I also used cocoa from a cocoa stick that my husband and I got on our honeymoon in St. Lucia. They are so savory and sweet at the same time. I hope they are a hit tonight with our guests!!
    I love these cookies, and the dough itself is to die for!!!
    these cookies did not have the real mocha flavor that I was expecting. They were also dry.
    This recipe is a good recipe for beginners. But on the other hand, many people don't like all of the butter that you need to add to make the cookies take its shape, so they end up looking like macaroons instead of cookies.
    These cookies were not very chocolatey or tasty. Followed the recipe to the letter and they were probably the most boring cookies I had ever tasted. Try something else.
    EASY, EASY, EASY! A real crowd pleaser.
    These cookies were yummy, and easy to make. I made them for my teachers, and they all loved them.
    wonderful cookies but I changed a couple ingredients. they turned out to be the best cookies I made so far!vgf
    I added toasted almond pieces to this recipe for a "mocha almond fudge" type of cookie. It was such a hit with everybody - they all want the recipe now! A wonderful crisp cookie with a sophistocated taste.
    Mounds of chocolate chips, good if you are really desiring chocolate, but I thought there was too many. I will reduce the chocolate chips to 12 oz the next time I make these.
    These are so much fun to make.. and eat! fattening yes... but use the right ingrediants and make them low fat! just as good! great for a suprise present.
    This is a bit more of a "sophisticated" chocolate chip cookie. The subtle mocha flavor is a nice change!
    This cookie was so popular that my co-workers request it again and again. One co-worker even requested that I make them for her wedding reception. It's like a traditional chocolate chip cookie but with a little something extra. You can modify the amount of spices and coffee to suit your tastes. I use less coffee/cappuccino powder for batches at home and follow the recipe as is when making them for the office. Recipe says it yields 3 doz. but I always get closer to 4 doz. Great cookie to go with a hot beverage.
