Brazilian Coffee Cookies | Cookie Recipes

I am not a regular coffee-drinker, but would not say no to a cup of joe on busy and cranky days. It is my pick me up. But I love coffee flavored bakes very much. The wonderful aroma of coffee which fills the whole kitchen when baking reminds me of the smell of the filter coffee brewed at home. I baked these Brazilian Coffee Cookies from Sailu's space before a couple of weeks for my friends. 
Also do check out my other Coffee flavored bakes - Mocha Chocolate Muffins and Coffee Almond Biscotti.


Sending this to Susan's Black & White Wednesday.
Ingredients:
Adapted from Sailu's Recipe here
All purpose flour / Maida - 2 cups
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Baking powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Light brown sugar - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup + more for dusting
Unsalted butter - 1/3 cup (room temperature)
Egg - 1 (room temperature)
Milk - 1 tbsp
Vanilla extract - 1 1/2 tsp
Instant coffee powder - 2 1/2 tbsp
Hot water - 1 tbsp
Method:
Preheat the oven to 390 F / 200 C. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Mix the hot water to the coffee powder and set aside. Whisk/sieve together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda. Cream the butter and sugars with hand mixer until light. Add the egg and mix well. Mix in the milk and vanilla extract followed by the flour mixture. When the dough comes together, cover with a plastic wrap and pop into the refrigerator for 15 mins. Make lime-sized balls of the dough and place on the parchment paper. Press down with a fork or a slotted spatula and sprinkle some sugar over the top. Place the balls with about one inch gap. Bake for 12 - 15 mins. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool for 30 minutes and store in an airtight container. Repeat with the remaining dough in batches.

I am sending this to 100 day Global Food Festival event by Kalyani.
