These coffee bean cookies are tastefully coffee-flavored. I dipped them in a chocolate glaze to make an even tastier mocha cookie.
Coffee bean cookies are definite crowd-pleaser with little effort on its making. Offer these crisp and crumbly cookies as a little dose of caffeine and light sweetness to your guests. A coffee lover will especially adore its shape and rich coffee flavor.
Similar to making butter cookies, we simply need to cream the butter and sugar with a hand whisk. Then mix the rest of the ingredients in. For shaping, we roll each to an oval shape and cut a long incision in the middle.
Chilling the dough before baking is required to harden the fats and prevent the cookie from spreading too much in the oven. This wait will also intensify the flavor as the dough gradually dries out and breaks down the sugar.
Here is another cookie recipe as adorable and simple: bow tie butter cookies
Coffee Bean Cookies
- 2 g instant coffee
- 8 ml hot water
- 70 g unsalted butter room temp.
- 57 g icing sugar sifted
- 1 large egg yolk
- 89 g all-purpose flour sifted
- 27 g corn starch sifted
- 13 g cocoa powder sifted
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Cream butter and sugar until combined with a hand whisk.
- Mix in egg, then the coffee solution (instant coffee diluted with hot water).
- Switching to a silicone spatula, mix in the rest of dry ingredients until they come together. The dough will be sticky enough that we can easily form a ball.
- With a scale, weigh out each cookie dough to 8 grams. Roll each to oval shape and place on a tray lined with parchment paper. Cut a long incision in the middle of each cookie. Then cover with another tray or plastic wrap and chill them in the fridge for 45 minutes.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 330°F / 165°C for 16 to 18 minutes.
- To make chocolate glaze, microwave a bowl of chocolate bar for 20 to 30 seconds. Take it out and stir. Microwave again and repeat the process until chocolate is completely melted.
- Dip the bottom of each cookie in melted chocolate. Place on a rack until chocolate glaze is set.
