    The cookies are good especially if you like coffee. I made these from TOH's "The Ultimate Cookie Collection" cookbook. It seems there may be a misprint in the book calling for 2 tsp of corn syrup and 2T of corn syrup. I would like to know the correct amount since I followed the recipe in the cook book.The dough was wet, I added 1/4cup more flour and they were messy rolling into balls and flattening with the glass dipped in sugar. (as a previous person mentioned) Then I decided to dip the glass in powdered sugar and that worked much better.

    These taste good, but the smashing with a glass dipped in sugar was messy and tedious. Mine were too wet to roll into a ball so I used a scoop.

    these aren't ur typical cookie. The flavor was good, but they didn't spread out some like i was expecting.

    Changed the instant coffee granules to 2T espresso shot plus 1/2 tsp finely ground espresso beans because I live in latte land and I wanted to up the coffee. My family loved them. My son in the Army appreciated the chocolate without being gooey in the heat. Definitely will make them again.
