I made these cookies for my niece who is in college. Here is what she said: (also, my husband loved the chocolate, coffee taste)Dear Auntie,I got cookies today! And they're so yummy---thanks a bunch! What kind are they? They're very different...I've never had anything like them, but boy are they addictive. Yum. They're sort of coffee/cinnamon-ish. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I got them and they're wonderful and thanks a lot!Love,El-09 Nov 2000
Can't comment on the cookies, just the chocolate dip. It was perfect for shortbread cookies; I dipped it in the chocolate then rolled them in toasted pecans. A hint if you don't have chips: 1/2 cup morsels is about 3 oz of baking squares. 3oz and 1 Tbsp was enough for 1 dozen medium sized cookies. Also, I found it easier to just microwave the chocolate and shortening for a few minutes, stirring every so often. Thanks!-08 Aug 2009
I make these every year at Christmas and they are always a hit. I lost my recipe, but you have saved the day. The name of my recipe is "Cappachino Flats" but the ingredients are the same.-17 Dec 2000
