A magnificent blend of textures and spices with a hint of coffee. These are great on a cold winter day.

A delicious spicy cookie! I didn't have semi-sweet chips on hand; I substituted white chocolate chips instead. My husband loves these cookies warm with a cold glass of milk. Read More

Something went terribly wrong with this recipe; my first AllRecipes flop. They came out like pancakes. The flavor was all right but the cookies were pancake like and fell apart. Will not make again. Read More

This cookie got mixed ratings. My husband and I enjoyed it but the younger kids didn't. It tasted like a soft gingerbread cookie with the coffee as an undertone. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Alright! I would recommend using a larger bowl when making them as there is a lot of dough. I'm not sure how big they are supposed to be but mine made well over three dozen. They were better when they were fresh the first day. Once they cooled the next day I thought they were too soft. Read More

I've made these cookies plenty of times and I love how they come out soft and not too hard. I've made alot for my granny and she really enjoys them. Everytime I make them I get so addicted and want more of them. The ground cloves raisins brewed coffee gives it a great taste. When they come out of the oven I can smell the pleasant aroma. I will definately continue making these cookies again. Read More
