I made coffee spice cookies just before my niece arrived. I wasn't sure about them. I felt they were okay, but nothing special. I was contemplating crushing them up and making a crust for a lemon cheesecake with them, which I still think would be very good, but my niece liked them as is. So we polished them off during her visit. I grew to like the coffee-spicey taste. I will make a double batch next time so there are enough to eat and enough to make cheesecake with.
I left out the chocolate sprinkles on purpose and I am glad. It just didn't seem they'd add anything good, even though I do love chocolate.
Also, these were super easy to make. Just mix everything together, roll into two logs and refrigerate. Then slice and bake.
