What do you think of when I ask you to list a 10 of your favorite food/beverages? Were these coffee sugar cookies on the list? They will be.
Back to my question, I bet you had chocolate and coffee on that list. I know I did. When I find something that combines two of my favorites in one, then I am a happy girl.
Do you feel the same? These cookies are going to bring a big smile to your face then. Even if you are not a big coffee lover, you will love these cookies.
The coffee flavor in these cookies is sort of an after taste. You are not hit with a strong coffee flavor, it sort of grows on you.
Chocolate comes next. I dipped these cookies in some milk chocolate and I think it adds just enough sweet chocolate to the entire cookie.
My daughter and I love the cookies without the chocolate also.
COFFEE SUGAR COOKIES
Coffee Sugar Cookies Dipped In Chocolate
Coffee sugar cookies dipped in chocolate combine the best of two great ingredients. Easy to make and easier to eat.
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup sugar (I used Imperial Sugar)
- 1 egg large
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 TBL Caveman ground coffee
- 1 cup chocolate chips melted
In large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt.
Place the disks in a plastic bag and refrigerate for about 2 hours.
With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg vanilla and coffee. With mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture; beat until combined.
Divide the dough in half and lay each half on a piece of plastic. Cover with another piece of plastic. Press or roll each piece until 1/8 thick.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Line baking sheets with parchment.
Remove the cookie dough about 10 minutes before you are ready to cut.
Using a rounded cookie cutter, Cut shapes with cookie cutters.
Transfer to the cookie sheet.
Repeat with remaining dough. Re-roll the scraps and continue to cut cookies.
Bake, for about 10 - 18 minutes (depends on the size) until edges are golden.
Cool completely on wire racks.
Dip cookies in melted chocolate. Place on parchment paper and let the chocolate harden.
You can freeze the dough for up to 3 months.
A few other things that I think are great about coffee sugar cookies dipped in chocolate:
- Easy to make
- Dough can be made a day or two in advance
- Great for a Christmas cookie tray
- Perfect treat for you when you need to treat yourself special (and you should)
I am grateful to Imperial Sugar and Caveman coffee for working with me and providing the perfect ingredients for these decadent cookies.
