A perfect recipe to share with my coffee-craving, cookie-loving friends.
1/3 cup butter
5 tbsp powdered sugar
1 egg yolk
1 cup flour
1 ½ tbsp cocoa powder
½ tbsp coffee powder
1tbsp warm water
Add hot water to the coffee powder and stir in to dissolve.
Cream together the butter and sugar with a whisk till creamy.
Add egg yolk and whisk again.
Add the coffee mixture and whisk well.
Mix the flour and cocoa powder well . Add to the above gently and fold in with a spatula little by little until you get a smooth dough.
Take half teaspoon of the dough and shape it in to a oval shape and place them on a tray lined with parchment paper ½ an inch apart.
Use the back of a knife or a tooth pick to press a middle line on each dough so that they resemble a coffee bean.
Now bake this in a preheated oven at 340 F/170 c for 10-12 minutes.
Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
