Ingredients

  • 150g cocoa powder
  • 180g all purpose flour
  • 0.5 tsp baking powder
  • 0.25 tsp salt
  • 225g butter
  • 300g granulated sugar
  • 100g light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 0.5 tsp instant coffee in 0.25 tsp warm water

Method

  1. Sift together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, salt in a large bowl, and set aside

  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add the egg & yolk one at a time, then the vanilla, followed by the instant coffee.

  3. Add the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated

  4. Wrap with plastic wrap and cool in the refrigerator at least 1 hour.

  5. Knead the dough slightly to help soften and avoid cracks when rolling. Place between 2 lightly floured sheets of parchment paper and roll into a 1/4-inch-thick rectangle.

  6. Using a round cookie cutter, cut the dough into circles. Any scraps will have to be re-chilled before you can re-roll it

  7. Place the cookies about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets and chill for 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 325f/165c.

  8. Bake the cookies until they are set (about 20 minutes) be sure not to let them get too dark or the cookie will become bitter.
