These cookies are delicious! In fact, half of my first batch disappeared before I got to the dipping, so I made a second. The unsweetened chocolate detracted from the great taste, so next time I will use semisweet or skip the dipping altogether.

these cookies were easy enough to make but the taste and texture were not very good. The coffee added an off taste and the white chocolate was a little too sweet for my taste.

(4-1/2 stars, actually!) Yummy, not-too-sweet -- made special by the two-flavor dipping. BUT: cookies spread more than expected; so next time I'll add a little more flour. AND: Be sure to break the cookies apart WHILE THEY'RE STILL WARM! Otherwise, you'll have odd-looking shapes -- which still taste great anyway!

These cookies were tasty, not too sweet and had a good texture. I would make again. I followed the suggestion of using semi-sweet chocolate instead of the non-sweet for dipping.

I really liked this recipe! It is very good and easy to make. Made these as gifts to give to coffee lovers.

These were quite easy to make, although I was somewhat nervous about the gooey texture of the dough. I used a package of Starbucks Via instant coffee rather than espresso powder. Don't like white chocolate so I used semisweet like others suggested. I will make these again and include them in my holiday gift giving.

I made these last Christmas. They were surprisingly easy and were a huge hit. I packaged some for my boyfriend to take to his family, but they never made it. You can guess what happened to them!

The parchment paper must be the key to success with this recipe.Mine crumbled all over the place.The taste & texture were great.I will definitely try this again WITH the parchment paper.I didn't want to go out in the rain just for that!

These were just ok. Not a big hit. I made them exactly as written. I suppose you could play around with the recipe to make it better but there are so many good cookie recipes out there so I think I'll just scrap this one. I love this website and have gotten more great recipes than not.

The shortbread wasn't as chocolately tasting as I had hoped. To help intensify the flavor a little, I drizzled semi-sweet chocolate and white chocolate over the entire shortbread. It definitely improved the flavor and made it very pretty.
