These taste like my favorite coffee house drink in cookie form. They're crispy outside, but soft in the middle. —Angela Spengler, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania

"This is a fantastic re-invention of a classic chocolate chip cookie. The caramel sauce and instant coffee give them such a rich flavor. The coffee is subtle enough so that it's not overpowering, but distinct enough that you know it's there. These are perfectly different. I'm definitely making these again!"
