Last Friday I stopped for a visit & a virtual mug of java @ my new friend Paloma’s blog called THE COFFEE SHOP…
I was not aware that every Friday is Coffee Friday blog hop @ The Coffee Shop…..unfortunately I had nothing to bring to the party……I did promise Paloma that I will not come empty handed next Friday….I shall bring some virtual COOKIES with me that will go well with her virtual coffee…..
….and I always keep my promise so today I am sharing my ESPRESSO COOKIES and linking them up to COFFEE Friday @ Paloma’s….
I was given recipe for these ESPRESSO Cookies from my aunt many years ago….I love to serve them at dinner parties with coffee or hot chocolate…..I think their richness & burst of CHOCOLATE & Coffee flavor makes them the perfect end after satisfying meal…..
- 1 3/4 cup Flour
- 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
- 1 cup Unsalted Butter (softened)
- 1 cup Powdered Sugar
- 2 tsp Espresso Coffee
- 2 Pkg Dr. Oetker Vanilla Sugar
STEP 1: Preheat oven to 350F.
STEP 2: In a large bowl beat together butter, powdered sugar and vanilla sugar.
STEP 3: In another bowl whisk together flour, cocoa and espresso coffee. Mix it gently into the butter and sugar mixture. You will have thick chocolate dough.
STEP 4: Divided the cookie dough in half. On lightly floured surface roll each half into a 1,5″ thick log.
STEP 5: Cut the logs into 1″ pieces. Roll each piece into a ball. Place the balls on ungreased cookie sheet 2″ apart
STEP 6: Gently flatten the cookie balls with fork (like peanut butter cookies).
STEP 7: Bake for 18 minutes.
STEP 8: Let the cookies cool down on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes before moving them onto wire racks. Dust with powdered sugar.
This recipe makes about 3 dozen of Espresso Cookies.
If you are in a mood for coffee or just great recipes don’t forget to stop by The Coffee Shop & tell Paloma that Bibi sent you…..
