These cookies are so yummy! I made them a few weeks ago for Valentine's Day, and they lasted on the counter very well. Usually having cookies last several days means that the recipe wasn't that great, but these were!!! They have ground coffee in them, though, so I wasn't able to eat more than one at once as this little baby gets a bit excited by caffeine. :) I found the recipe over on this blog and followed it without changing anything. Sometimes I tweak a little as I go, but not this time. I'm so glad I let them be - they are just so good!
Coffee Sugar Cookies 1 cup butter, softened 1 1/4 cups sugar 2 cups flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 2 eggs 2 tbsp. fresh ground coffee (you can also use instant crystals or powder) I used fresh 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon salt
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. In a small bowl, combine eggs, vanilla, and coffee. In yet another bowl, add together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Slowly add your egg mixture to the butter mixture until well combined. Slowly add flour mixture until fully combined, do not over beat. I would chill this dough for AT LEAST one hour, preferably overnight. The dough is pretty wet even then, so be prepared to flour your rolling pin well. When you are ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until edges are slightly golden. Allow cookies to cool completely before covering in any icing.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not take them bothAnd be one traveler, long I stoodAnd looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;//Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing thereHad worn them really about the same,//
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,I doubted if I should ever come back.//I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made the difference.
