I read the reviews, and decided to give this recipe a try. I made it exactly as it is on the site, it was wonderful. Then, I decided to try some stronger coffee, we love the flavor at our house, I used Medaglia D'Oro, an instant espresso, the flavor is very 'mocha'. I like it just as well both ways, the cookies seemed to be moister with the instants espresso??? No reason to, the cookies are made the same way.

I was very excited to make these cookies. And I'll have to admit, I was a little bit disappointed with the results. The cookies were a bit too heavy for my taste. I had some friends of mine try them and none of them took a second. It wasn't because they weren't tasty, but they are the kind of cookies you can only eat one. I don't think I'll make them again :(

These cookies were incredibly delicious! Instead of instant coffee, I substituted in 1/4 cup of a hispanic brand of non-instant coffee called Cafe Bustelo with 4 tablespoons of water -flavor turned out to be great nevertheless. Also, did not have almonds around the house so made the cookies without nuts and they still turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!

AWESOME recipe. Made exactly like it says here, tried the espresso powder as suggested in one review. I will make them this way forever! That powder gives such a rich, coffee flavor. Very good, got rave reviews at home and at work. Thanks for the great recipe! There is no liqeur in this recipe. Also, if you change around all the ingredients, you aren't rating THIS recipe.

I usually like to rate recipes for how they are exactly without adding or taking anything away, but this time I was without liquer so I just used real coffee and was very impressed! SUPER GOOD

I have been making these for a few years, since I found the recipe on this site. They are really good, easy to make, and even kids like them. I toast the almonds a little longer,so they are a dark-golden brown. The last time I made them, I tried freezing them until a later date, and they came out fine. The freezing didn't harm the nuts or cookie at all. This recipe is a keeper!

I was needing a comfort junk food fix and this fit the bill. I did as some suggested and added 1/2 c. coffee and left out the almonds, as I did not have any on hand. Very soft texture which I love, and it makes your house smell yummy. Thanks ccsick for sharing this recipe.

Nice...I've messed up some of the highly-rated recipes here but this one turned out just right. I used coffee powder instead of granules and the taste was just right. One weird thing though- I altered the recipe to make 12 but ended up with enough dough for 24 (using a teaspoon). If I would have liked to add some coffee liquer but I didn't have any on hand.
