  1. I’ve made these a number of times. My favorite sub was chopped Lindt orange/almond chocolate. Mmmmm. DO NOT skip the chill. It is essential for these cookies to hold shape. I use my pizza cutter and ruler to get nice straight lines.

  2. These are amazing! Delicate and rich all at the same time. I was too lethargic to go out and buy a package of zip lock bags so I used a 12″ pie crust slipcover and made 1 1/2″ circular cookies instead (with just enough scraps left over to nosh on.)

  3. I’m not a fan of coffee but these were definitely FUN to make. It was so satisfying to slit open that zip lock bag and be able to cut perfect squares. I only had a nibble, but my husband thought these were fantastic.

  4. So since there are no eggs in the dough, is it okay just to eat it all without baking? jk!
    But good stuff. I don’t “do” coffee, so I used some hazelnut flavoring. So good. Just made the dough and it’s chillin’.
    I made half a recipe, so now just for fun, I might make the oatmeal one, too.

  5. mmmm I was tempted to add a little raspberry to these as my favorite Starbys drink is a tall raspberry mocha frappachino. My dough is chilling as we speak. :)

  6. I didn’t even notice the oatmeal version till you all were talking about it. I made the espresso-chocolate version for my SIL and nibbled on a couple myself to try them. They were delish! I figured the espresso wouldn’t buzz me any more than a tiramisu… but I must be a real caffeine light weight now because I could really feel the coffee buzz (which wasn’t a bad thing yesterday!).

    I want to go try the oatmeal version with cocoa nibs now!

  7. I, too, felt the coffee buzz from these. Note to self, after giving up caffeine for 6 months, espresso chocolate shortbread cookies before bed is a BAD idea.

    I liked that they weren’t too sweet and would be a great match for a cuppa joe :-) Probably decaf, though.

  8. I just finished baking mine – I only chilled the dough for about 3 hours and they came out just fine, in case anyone is short on time.

    Also – Dorie’s new book is now available (on Amazon anyway)! I just ordered my copy :)
