I made these for the superbowl party. They are great!! Not too sweet. I used instant coffee ( I don't know what espresso powder is). I made them small and got 60 cookies. The bigger ones got real flat, i liked the smaller fatter ones. The last part of the batch I added dried canberries. Very good. I think next time I make them I will try hazelnuts. Oh and did I mention that I do not bake. I usually use cake/cookie mixes. These were very good and very easy.


The most amazing cooies ever! I put in in coffee flavored bits of chocolate. Absolutely decadent!


Great cakey, chewey texture. The macadamia nuts lend a good, salty crunch. I used a bit more espresso powder (1.5 Tablespoons) but that's because I really like the taste of espresso. I cooked them only about 10 minutes, which was perfect. I will make these again.
