My Favorite Cookie Recipe: It's a crossword puzzle

I just posted "My Favorite Cookie."

It's a cookie recipe within a crossword puzzle.

My Favorite Cookie Recipe: Solve the puzzle, then bake the cookies.

Solve it interactively, print to solve later, or print only the clues list to solve as a diagramless.

The answer grid is included, and here's the recipe, in case you only want to make the cookies:

Chocolate Mocha Cocoa Cookies

In a large mixing bow, cream together 2 cups unsalted butter and 3/4 cups powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in 2 egg yolks. In a separate bowl, dissolve 1 teaspoon instant coffee in 1 teaspoon of very hot water. Stir until completely dissolved. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, then add the flavorings to the butter/sugar mixture.

Stir in 2-1/2 cups of all-purpose flour.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a prepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes at 375F (190C).

While still warm, roll cookies in a mixture of 3/4 cup powdered sugar and 3 tablespoons cocoa powder.

Let cook on a wire rack.
