I found some leftover instant coffee powder a few days ago. Since I'm not a big fan of instant coffee, I'm thinking of baking something to use the coffee powder.
This cute and delicious coffee cookie is very easy to make, and is a perfect match as a dessert for your coffee.
Step 1: Ingredients
You will need:
--30g sugar powder
--10g heavy cream
--12g instant coffee powder
--3g cocoa powder
--100g cake flour
You might need to adjust the amount of sugar powder you use based on the sweetness of your coffee powder. And although in most cases a better ingredient leads to a better result, you shouldn't use high end ground coffee powder in this case. It's a waste on one hand, on the other hand it would make the cookie too bitter to eat.
Step 2: Prepare the Dough
Soft your butter (don't melt it) and combine it with sugar powder. Put your coffee powder, cocoa powder and heavy cream into the mixing bowl as well.
Step 3: Combine the Ingredients
After you combine those ingredients together, use a spatula to smooth everything. Then sift the cake flour into the mixing bowl as well.
Mix the flour into the mixer, but don't over mix it.
Step 4: Shape the Dough
At first it would look like bread crumbs. Then use your hand to press them until it became a smooth dough.
It's actually a very easy process as you can see on the right corner of first picture, I shaped a small dough very easily.
Step 5: Shape the Coffee Beans
Divided the dough into 5g small pieces, shape each one to an oval shape and then press the middle line with a tooth pick.
Step 6: Bake the Cookies
Put them into the oven which is preheated to 340°F, and bake for about 20 min.
Take them out and let them cool. They are very crispy after they cool down.
Step 7: Enjoy!
It's very tasty with the nice aroma of coffee, the shape is also very cute, so I love some of the cookies when I'm having my coffee!
