You'll be remembered for these cookies when you serve them for a morning coffee or at a gathering. Melted chips drizzled on top make them look fancy, but they're so easy to make. —Dixie Terry, Goreville, Illinois

MY REVIEW

"I really liked this recipe for many reasons--the dough was very easy to make, it rolled and cut beautifully without prior chilling, and they tasted delicious. I let the icing firm up completely before placing them in a freezer container and freezing them for an upcoming meeting where I want to serve an assortment of cookies. I, of course, had to taste one and once I did I knew I would be making these cookies often!"

"The coffee flavor can be intense - I think it depends on what kind of instant coffee you use. I had some Starbucks on hand, which is usually strong. The chocolate drizzle was terrific as a balance to the coffee taste. I brought the whole batch to work and came back later in the day to an empty container and many compliments."

"These cookies have a nice coffee flavor for all you coffee lovers out there. I think the chocolate drizzle is a must as they can be a bit intense with out that sweetness to balance the coffee flavor."
