A ginger biscuit with added coffee flavour.
I've been making these cookies for years. They work best with the flavoured powdered instant coffees. Don't cook them quite so long for a really yummy chewy cookie. - 17 Dec 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
3/4 cup sugar total is plenty, and it definitely needs more coffee, dissolve at least 3 tablespoons instant coffee in a little hot water so it mixes in better but leave out milk then.11 minutes baked is plenty for a nice cookie. If you leave them in a ball, dip then in sugar they will crack and they are even softer. - 04 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These are excellent, the review that said they have a subtle coffee taste is correct (I used decaf Folger's, I wanted to be able to see the coffee in the cookies). I will definitely make these again, next time I might try a packet of coffee powder with the Folger's crytals. I rolled mine in regular sugar, and I didn't get the 'crackling' effect so maybe confectioner's sugar is what is needed to make these cookies 'crackle' on top. - 05 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
