This is definitely a grown-up version of an old favorite. The combination of chocolate, coffee and cinnamon are unbelievable. For more fun, I often use chocolate-covered coffee beans on top. —Jeanne Holt, Mendota Heights, Minnesota

"I haven't made these - but not sure I'd want coffee granules in it. However, for those who say these cookies spread out - too thin . . . I believe you should drop the mixture, by teaspoonfuls on the parchment-lined tray, THEN PUT IN THE FRIDGE for 30 mins or so. Try baking them from a cooled state, in this manner & they should remain like the "rounded" shape they are supposed to be."

"I haven't made these yet, but I'm very reluctant because I've never had any luck with macaroons. They always spread out paper thin when I bake them. Anyone have any suggestions as to what's going wrong and how to fix it?"

"Why would you need to bake these, I didn't think the ingredients would warrant it which could make them spread."

"A sweet treat that's good to eat! The texture is a little different than what I'm used to, but not in a bad way at all!"

"What's missing? The cookies look more like pancakes. Won't be making these again."
