I am sooo in love with these cookies! I did make a few adjustments to the recipe. I used 3 teaspoons of instant coffee granules. I used an 11oz bag of caramels. I made the cookies into 1 inch balls. Mine only had to bake about 7 minutes. I love caramel so I put about 1-2 tsps on my cookies and I didn't think it was too sweet - maybe the extra coffee I put in balanced it better. The indentation raises while being bake so I tried 2 different methods and both worked: 1. Make the indentation before being baked and right after they come out of the oven. This creates a wider, flat cookie (like in the picture. OR 2. Bake the cookie in the ball shape and then make an indentation right after they come out of the oven. This creates more of a round cookie (like a tassie shape). I use the back of "cookie baller" (which is actually a coffee grinds scooper) to make the indentation.
