Introduction: Coffee Bean Biscuits
These buttery coffee-flavored cookies are shaped like cute coffee beans.
If you're stuck at home and looking for a quick baking project, they don't take a lot of ingredients to make so let's get started!
Step 1: Ingredients
- 120g Cake flour
- 12g Cocoa powder
- 25g Corn starch
- 70g Icing Sugar
- One egg yolk
75g unsalted room temp butter
a splash of hot water (about 6g)
5g Instant coffee powder
*Note: the corn starch is super helpful for making the cookie soft and allowing it to hold its shape during baking!
Step 2: Make the Coffee
Take your instant coffee and add a small splash of hot water. We're looking to have a concentrated coffee mixture that won't water down our dough.
Step 3: Cream Together Your Butter and Sugar
Step 4: Add Your Egg Yolk
Step 5: Add Coffee to the Mix
Pour slowly to ensure that the wet mixture doesn't get too watered down.
Step 6: Sift in Your Dry Ingredients
To the creamed butter add your flour, corn starch, and cocoa. Mix until you get a ball of dough. It shouldn't be too sticky.
Step 7: Shape the Cookies
Prepare a lined baking sheet with parchment paper.
I used a scale to measure out 10g balls of cookie dough and rolled them into ovals.
Take the back of a knife or a dough scraper-- anything with a 1mm thickness-- and press it into the ovals to get your coffee bean shapes.
Step 8: Chill the Shaped Cookies for Half an Hour
In the freezer, they can chill for a shorter amount of time.
Step 9: Preheat Your Oven and Bake
After they've been chilled, preheat to 140 degrees Celsius or 280 degrees Fahrenheit and bake the cookies for 15-20 minutes.
Step 10: Enjoy Your Cookies!
I had mine with the TikTok trending dalgona coffee for a double caffeine boost :)
These cookies would go nicely with a glass of cold milk or a cup of hot tea for an afternoon snack.
