Week 3 Twelve Weeks of Christmas:
Hasn’t this week just flown by! Here we are at week 3 of Twelve Weeks of Christmas Cookies. I decided to share with you one of mine and my family’s favourite cookie – The Coffee Snap! With an intense coffee flavour and satisfying crunch these cookies are bound to become your favourites too! They keep well in an airtight container or even in the freezer ready to welcome an unexpected guest.
250g brown sugar
3 teaspoons ground coffee beans
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
110g self raising flour
110g all purpose flour
approx 70 coffee beans for decoration
Preheat oven to 170C. Beat butter, sugar, coffee and extract with electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Add the egg, beat until just combined. Stir in sifted flours. Roll small teaspoons of the mixture into balls. Place 3 cm about on baking paper lined oven trays. Top each with a coffee bean. They may seem small but remember they will spread during baking.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until browned. Stand for 5 minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool.
This recipe make about 70 cookies!
