Changed it up and they turned out beautiful...ommited coffee, cut cinnamon in half , added good chocolate chunks (guittards) and rolled in pow sugar...didn¿t need to chill dough. Baked minimum and took them out, turned out perfect!

I added 1/2 c sweetened coconut to the granulated sugar instead of the cocoa. Then I pulsed it in the food processer and poured it onto a plate. Then pressed my cookie dough balls into that and baked for 8 min. Came out soft and chewy and perfect. I can hardly keep myself out of these.

Made these for Christmas baskets.  They looked dreadful and tasted worse!  Had to throw them down the disposal.  A waste of time and ingredients!

These are really great - not too sweet which I like this time of year. The cocoa and coffee are a great pairing. They are super easy to make and hold up well for gift giving.

these are awful. super dry and coffee-ish. the only way to save them is to reheat them and put ice cream over them. totally inconvenient for a holiday cookie.
