Coffee bean cookies

I love looking for new inspiration on the web. I have a whole separate board on Pinterest devoted to cooking inspiration. I just don't seem to have enough time to try everything that looks soo cool!

Recently I've stumbled upon this Polish blog that I just adore and found this amazing recipe I want to share.

I modified the recipe slightly and doubled the amount of ingredients and, as far as I remember, got 62 cookies. That's not much considering their size. 

Their name is adequate, isn't it?

Coffee bean cookies

Some facts:
My rating: 8/10
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes (one batch)
Yield: 62 small cookies

  • 70g butter or margarine (I used margarine)
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar (I used powdered sugar - 1 cup)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 - 1 1/3 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 2 heaped tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 pinch salt (forgot to add it)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
Cooking Directions
Mix butter till it gets fluffy and white.

Mix eggs with sugar and coffee. Add to butter and mix a bit more.

In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, cocoa and salt.

Combine wet and dry ingredients. Knead.

From the dough form small balls (the amount of a teaspoon). Place on the baking tray. 

With the blunt side of a knife make a little groove in the ball. Dip the knife in flour if it sticks to the cookies.

Bake for 10 minutes in 180*C.
