Reviews for Coffee Bonbons
"These cookie are great! I make then every year for my thanksgiving trays and always get great reviews. great flavor. I do however cut down on the cook time to about 15 min."
"One of my favorite cookie recipes of all times!!! I make them every Christmas...would be too dangerous to make them more often!"
"My family loves these cookies! Make sure to use the larger instant coffee granules (like Foldgers) instead of the smaller instant coffee granules (like Via), otherwise they turn out WAY too strong, even for me (and I love coffee)."
"These cookies were OK but nothing great."
