    I was a little disappointed by this recipe. Just out of the oven the cookies were great. A little crispy on the outside and a little chewy on the inside. The Coffee Liqueur flavor was subtle. The next day the cookies were really hard. I might try more brown sugar next time. I may also increase the coffee liqueur. My rating would be 3 stars, but it appears that my husband loves hard cookies, so the rating increased to 4.  -  10 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were good but not great. I cut the size of the cookies down to a heaping teaspoon which also required less baking time (12-13 minutes). I used parchment paper also on the baking sheets.  -  03 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a great cookie if you like chocolate - and very easy to make. I will definitely keep this one in my recipe box.  -  05 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
