Chocolate coffee cream fancies: My cute little fancy cookies.

 My sister just want to eat some cookies, but I don't know what kinds of the cookies that she really want to eat. So, I just handed her a book, and told her to choose from it ^^.

 She choose many recipes, but this one caught my attention. It's cute and more important it has coffee flavor, I think that my mom will be happy with it too.
If you see the photo you may think that it should be very sweet, because there are a lot of icing on top of the cookies (something that I really afraid of too), but you can see in the recipe that the cookies contain small amount of the sugar. So, everything is balance, the bitter taste of the coffee make the sweetness more welcome. I think about using this cookie dough when I want to make the iced cookie ^^. 
When making the coffee cream, start with a tablespoon of milk and adding more until you get right consistency, you will be able to control it this way. And don't forget to wait until the icing dry before piping the melt chocolate, or the melt chocolate will drop into the icing instead of stay on top of it .
