Notes

These cookies are a magical combination of chocolate and coffee flavors and to enjoy them with a cup of coffee...heaven!

I originally found this recipe in the Better Homes & Gardens issue 2002 issue of Simply Perfect Holiday Baking. They were originally called "Mocha Wands" for the cookie press disc used to create the cookie shape. I have made a few ajustments, utilizing packets of instant coffee rather than the original 4 teaspoons of espresso coffee powder they called for, increased the vanilla from 1 teaspoon to 1 Tablespoon and using a different cookie press disc to yield more cookies, but the adjustments have gained rave reviews!
