    Altered ingredient amounts. These were very good-- I'd just make a few changes to make them even better! Add about 3/4 cups extra flour to make sure the dough is "dough-y" enough, and chill for half an hour before trying to shape it. Make sure the coffee is strong so you get the flavour, and I added some ginger to add a kick to it. Also, these biscuits spread and puff up, so make sure there's about 2 inches between the long strips on the biscuit sheet-- I'd use two separate sheets.  -  29 Sep 2008


    These truly are "the best". Chewy, moist, great combination of flavours. These are in my top 5 all time favourite biscuits. They turn out well every time.  -  29 Sep 2008


    These are wonderful. My husband used to get them in the north end. A part of Boston Ma. as a child with his parents. The coffee is what makes the flavour. Like a rich spice cake. He is so happy I found this recipe. He does want more raisin's next time  -  29 Sep 2008
