Coffee cookies

Lucy Chen

This recipe was sent in by Lucy Chen from Taiwan

People who are not used to the bitter taste of coffee can still enjoy the great smell of coffee. Coffee cookie is another choice! It also goes perfectly with tea or milk.

Coffee cookies

The finished dish

Ingredients (makes about 28 cookies)

  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 120g brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons of coffee powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of hot water
  • 200g (plain) flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 100g corn flour
  • 1 teaspoon of soda powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder


  1. Mix the coffee powder and water together to make a smooth paste.
  2. Mix the butter and sugar together until smooth. Then add the coffee mixture and blend together.
  3. Sieve the flour, baking powder, corn flour, soda and cocoa powder into the mixture. Mix everything together evenly to make a dough.
  4. Wrap the dough in plastic film wrap for half hour. (In summer, put into a fridge)
  5. Break off some dough, roll in to a ball and then press it into a thin and flat circle (about 6 cm in diameter). Do the others in the same way.
  6. Heat the oven. Bake at 160°C (310°F/Gas3) for 12 minutes and then turn down to 100°C (212°F/Gas ¼) and bake for another 7 minutes.
  7. Turn off the heat and leave the cookies in the oven for 5 minutes.


  • Different coffee beans make the cookies taste different!.
  • Don’t roll the dough too thin. Move the cookie from baking plate only when they are cool enough to avoid breaking them.
