This recipe has been a family favorite for many years. It comes from an index card taped in my oldest recipe notebook. It is written in my sister-in-law’s pretty handwriting, from a time when we were both recently married and often shared recipes when we got together.
I don’t make as many cookies at Christmastime as I used to. Some seasons go by without me giving a thought to these wonderful cookies, laced with some of my favorite flavors. Others go by without me being able to remember where I keep the recipe. This year after my husband specifically asked if I would make a batch of these and after I managed to put my hands on the recipe card he suggested I put it on my blog….for safe keeping.
If you like buttery-brown-sugar-sweetness married to the boldness of coffee and chocolate, you’ll be glad he did!
