“Coffee is a language in itself.”- Jackie Chan

I absolutely love making shortbread. Buttery and crumbly , they are easy to make and you can easily add any flavours you want.

This version version takes a basic recipe, to another level with a generous dose of instant coffee powder . Being an out and out coffee lover (make that coffee maniac) , I really enjoyed these ! And the gorgeous texture was lovely. The dipped chocolate adds a tad bit of elegance (?) to an otherwise simple cookie and some relief for people who like their cookies sweet!

These are subtly sweet, tender and pack an insane coffee punch! Its a cookie for the true coffee connoisseur . Might not be everyone’s cup of tea (pun fully intended!)

The beauty of this recipe is the simplicity of it and the buttery divine taste that results. Enjoy these , with what else…. a cup of coffee!

Recipe Notes

Step by step tutorial:

Also:

  • These cookies keep well for 3-4 days at room temperature in an airtight container.
  • Reduce the coffee as per your taste.
  • Its easiest to roll the dough between two sheets of parchment.
  • Re rolling scraps many times may cause the dough to get greasy.
  • I made cookies using a 2 cm circular cookie cutter. Adjust your baking time according to the size of your cookies.
  • You can chill the shaped dough overnight if you want.
