These are a delicious cake like cookie, with a wonderful Mocha frosting, which I have used for many different desserts.

This recipe comes from a Taste of Home magazine of mine. I have made these cookies more times than I can remember. Always loved by family and friends.

I changed the recipe just a bit to my liking.
