About this recipe: A ginger biscuit with added coffee flavour.
If you don't have powdered instant coffee, use a pestle and mortar to make a powder out of instant coffee granules.
This was just okay for me. I think what really turned me off was the granules of instant coffee that I'd crunch into while I was eating the cookie. If I ever make this again, I'll try a powder or I'll use fresh-brewed coffee. - 21 Jul 2008
A rare thing amongst "ginger biscuit with added coffee flavour" in having no ginger at all in it.... however, that aside... Tried replacing the coffee powder and milk with 4 tbsp strong espresso plus 1 tbsp camp coffee and chicory plus boosting the flour by 50 gms and throwing in 50gms coconut. Made 30. Grrrrreat, especially with a dab of coffee icing on top of each just enough to hold on half a walnut for all except six in which I stuck a walnut half into the top before baking. - 12 Sep 2013
Altered ingredient amounts. I accidentally read the recipe wrong and put in only 2 teaspoons of coffee -- Ooops! The coffee flavour wasn't as strong as I would have liked, although you could still taste it, but I think I'd like them more if the texture was different. - 21 Jul 2008
