I got up early this morning to bake delicious coffee flavor cookies for an exchange at a family party today. I know, I know…I waited a little long to get busy baking but I hosted a party for friends at my house last night and there just hasn’t been enough time. I tell you all that so you will understand how simple and easy this recipe is.
