I bake a lot of cookies for people at and these are one of my most requested shortbread cookies. Any coffee lover will devour these up quickly. These are also great to serve at tea functions because they look so pretty.

How to Make Coffee Shortbread

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 305. Lightly grease your cookie sheets and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar, sugar, and coffee granules.
  3. Sift your flour and salt together and gradually add to creamed mixture. Mix well. Dough will be a nice brown with coffee specks in it.
  4. On a lightly floured work surface, roll dough to 1/4" thickness. Cut with a flower shaped cookie cutter (2-3" size). Place 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Bake in preheated oven for 20-22 minutes or until set. Do not let get too brown on top. Remove from oven and cool on wire wracks.
  5. After cookies are cooled, drizzle melted semi sweet chocolate across the cookie. Drizzle melted white baking chocolate in opposite direction of semi sweet chocolate. (see picture)
