These cookies are SO good! With just enough coffee flavor! I used powdered instant espresso, as opposed to powdered instant coffee, so I could use less and still get a strong enough flavor. It’s dissolved in a very small amount of water so it thickens the water a bit as it dissolves. You don’t want to add too much liquid to the dough, or your dough will spread too much when baking, use only 1 tablespoon of hot water.
Make it and enjoy with cup of milk, you will love it I can assure.
