Reviews for Coffee Shortbread
Sort By :
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 were good
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.
I found them to be rather bland. The chocolate drizzle made them difficult to layer for storage without smearing and perhaps needed a firmer hand to make a pretty drizzle. I ended up dipping them. They did cut nicely with cookie cutters and I found that they kept their shape, so I used small ones and they do look nice sitting on a saucer with a cup on it. They weren't particularly rich as I would have expected shortbread to be.
This recipe looks soooo good! I can't wait to try it. Anything with coffee interests me.
