Chocolate chip cookies are made extra special in this recipe that includes a little coffee and toasted slivered almonds for extra texture and flavour.
I read the reviews, and decided to give this recipe a try. I made it exactly as it is on the site, it was wonderful. Then, I decided to try some stronger coffee, we love the flavor at our house, I used Medaglia D'Oro, an instant espresso, the flavor is very 'mocha'. I like it just as well both ways, the cookies seemed to be moister with the instants espresso??? No reason to, the cookies are made the same way. - 27 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These cookies were incredibly delicious! Instead of instant coffee, I substituted in 1/4 cup of a hispanic brand of non-instant coffee called Cafe Bustelo with 4 tablespoons of water -flavor turned out to be great nevertheless. Also, did not have almonds around the house so made the cookies without nuts and they still turned out great. Thanks for the recipe! - 03 Mar 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
AWESOME recipe. Made exactly like it says here, tried the espresso powder as suggested in one review. I will make them this way forever! That powder gives such a rich, coffee flavor. Very good, got rave reviews at home and at work. Thanks for the great recipe! There is no liqeur in this recipe. Also, if you change around all the ingredients, you aren't rating THIS recipe. - 03 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
