How To Make coffee spice cookies!

  • 1
    Dissolve instant coffee in warm water. Beat butter and brown sugar in large bowl.
  • 2
    Add egg, vanilla, and coffee to sugar mixture, until throughly mixed.
  • 3
    Mix in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • 4
    Divide dought into 2 equal parts. Shape each half into 7-inch long roll by 1/2 inch wide (I generally use the width of 2 fingers).
  • 5
    Use a sheet either of Parchment Paper or Wax Paper for each roll of dough.
  • 6
    Roll dough (it will be sticky though, may use a little extra flour for rolling dough) into chocolate sprinkles, pressing lightly.
  • 7
    Wrap tightly. Refrigerate at least 1-1/2 hours or more.
  • 8
    Pull cookie dough out of refrigerator. Heat oven to 375 F.
  • 9
    Cut cookie dough roll into 1/4-inch slices.
  • 10
    Place slices 1/2 inch apart on ungreased baking sheet or stoneware.
  • 11
    Bake 6 to 9 minutes or until set. Cool on Rack.
  • 12
    BAKER'S NOTE: May substitute Starbucks Mocha powder, instead of instant coffee. Added Bonus - add Mini-Chocolate Chips to dough. YUM!

    BAKER'S NOTE: Instead of rolling dough into a log, use a Small Scoop (1 T measurement) and scooping your cookie dough into balls, then roll into chocolate sprinkles. May take 2 or 3 minutes more to bake though! Enjoy!! :)
