    One of my favorite cookie recipes of all times!!! I make them every Christmas...would be too dangerous to make them more often!

    My family loves these cookies! Make sure to use the larger instant coffee granules (like Foldgers) instead of the smaller instant coffee granules (like Via), otherwise they turn out WAY too strong, even for me (and I love coffee).
