Okay. So, here's the deal. I made these this morning after reading the reviews and thinking that I could do this with their suggestions in tow. I love coffee in just about anything and I couldn't let poor reviews deter me.
I added a little vanilla in with the egg and used those tiny cups of coffee shots up to one cup to really concentrate the coffee flavor. After all the ingredients were combined, the dough was really liquid-y. I didn't add the raisins because I didn't have any, but I doubt that would change the thickness of the cookie dough. This was something that some of the other reviewers had issue with. So, I added another half cup of flour.
I tried the dough and it was good, but could use a little firming. So, it's in
the fridge for a couple hours.
I'll update this once I've made them. I plan on frosting them either with a coffee icing or mocha icing.
EDITED: These turned out really well. I thought when they puffed up while cooking that they would be one of those cakey kind of cookies. Not so. They fell when cooling and got pretty little crinkles on top. I frosted them with the Mocha Icing from this site, which was just the right icing for this particular cookie.
I will make these again, with my adjustments. You really need the extra
half cup of flour and the time in the fridge to firm. This does make a tasty cookie.
EDITED AGAIN: My husband fell in love with these and wants to take a batch to work tomorrow. These were way better than I thought they would be.
