RECIPE: Coffee Sugar Cookies with Coffee Drizzle
We love coffee at our house. And I love baking. So I decided to combine two loves into one delicious cookie. These are super easy and they got a big thumbs up from my family and coworkers.
Coffee Sugar Cookies with Coffee Drizzle
1 cup of butter softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons of fresh ground coffee
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 tablespoon of milk
2 cups of flour
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
Splash of coffee
Add coffee by the splashes until powdered sugar is of drizzling consistency.
In a mixer cream together butter and sugar.
In another bowl combine eggs, vanilla, coffee and milk. Whisk until fully incorporated.
In another bowl mix together your dry ingredients; flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Slowly add your egg mixture to the creamed butter in your mixer until well combined, then slowly add your flour mixture until combined. Do not over mix.
Place batter on a long log on a floured sheet of plastic wrap. Using a spatula create an even shaped log and wrap in plastic. Roll a few times on the counter to make it nice, even and round. Freeze for 30 minutes until very firm.
Preheat oven to 350˚. Pull out your firm dough log, and using a serrated knife, cut ½” thick circles and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet about 1 ½” apart.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until edges are slightly golden. Allow cookies to cool completely before drizzling with the coffee drizzle. Let the drizzle set, then store cookies between parchment paper in an airtight container for 3 to 5 days (or freeze).
