* You can add more sugar if want more sweeter cookies, as mine are mild.
* If you dont have brown sugar then replace it with white one.
* If baking for small kids then you can omit coffee powder, as some kids don't like it's flavour.
*If using strong coffee like expresso then add only 1 tsp. as it may turn cookies bitter.
So bake these divine cookies at home and surprise your loved ones. It's perfect snacks for your morning/evening tea or for kids tiffin. Enjoy whenever you want. Hope you all will love this simple yet delicious recipe and will definitely give it a try.
