Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min./batch + cooling
Makesabout 2-1/2 dozen
I found the dough to be dry and crumbly and am wondering if my mistake was in creaming the butter, then adding the sugar, coffee granules and salt. Should those ingredients all be creamed together? They were more challenging than I expected after reading the wonderful reviews. They ARE very tasty!
Tried these for my Christmas cookie tins for neighbors and friends. Has a subtle coffee flavor and lightly crisp texture. I didn't bake mine for 20 min though.
I was hoping these were as good as they look, and they are! I normally don’t use brown sugar in my shortbread, but it works well with the instant coffee. So good!
OH, so good. And surprisingly easy to make. Keep well (if you can keep from eating them all at once). I like the crispness of a thinner cookie, so these are perfect for me. Instead of the drizzle, I dipped a corner of each one in melted chocolate. Super good even without the chocolate, though.
Superb! Great coffee taste, nice crispy shortbread. I didn't do the chocolate drizzle. I would give these ten stars, if I could - Outstanding! Thanks for sharing your recipe, Dixie!
These were very tasty!! This recipe will go into my favorites!
Perfect, crunchy cookie! Will definitely be adding theses cookies to my annual Christmas gift baskets; I'm sure they'll be a hit! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I made these for the first time as part of my Christmas cookie baking. I found them incredibly easy to make. The dough rolled out well and I was able to cut each cookie out with no problem. I drizzled the melted chocolate/white chocolate using a spoon and it worked very well and the end result was pretty. NOTE: the dough is not sweet, so the chocolate drizzle is a must! I found rolling the dough to 1/4 too thin. Shortbread cookies should be on the thicker side. Next time I may try adding a little cinnamon to the dough for an added flavor.
4 star. These are addictive, especially if you like coffee flavor. I decided just to frost them with chocolate icing.
I made these for my card group today and they were hit, a lot of requests for the recipe, definitely will make these again
