    Really easy and good! I put 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 regular so my consistency might be a bit different, but they were still delicious! - 1/17/10

    I only used 3/4 cup of sugar and it was still quite sweet; I would also make sure to use freshly-brewed coffee. I didn't especially like them, though my dad did. Be aware that the calories are low because it's half a biscotti-length, which is a trend I'm noticing on this site. - 8/14/13

    Really good. At first I thought they didn't have much flavor (and I added extra cinnamon and nutmeg), but the next day they were really good. And my husband loved them. Great with a cup of coffee and one cookie is actually enough for a cookie craving! - 12/28/11
