I could hardly believe I hadn't posted this recipe yet. These are AHHHHH-mazing! I had created the double chocolate coffee cookies a while back and wanted something with the same bold coffee flavor while maintaining the view of those adorable little coffee specks. I whipped up this recipe before heading to a girlfriend get together, and my coffee-addicted friends raved over these. Since then, I've started selling them on my Etsy shop--Adorkable Bakery--and they've been a real hit! If you're a coffee lover, you've got to try these!
