INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTES

Ingredient quantities please refer to the recipes card (Click here)!

  • Butter – This is the primary fat component in the cookies, providing richness and flavor. It is a crucial ingredient in cookies, providing flavor and contributing to the texture. Margarine or a non-dairy butter substitute can be used, but keep in mind that it might slightly alter the taste. If you don’t have unsalted butter, you can use salted butter and adjust the amount of added salt in the recipe accordingly.
  • Icing Sugar – Also known as powdered sugar, icing sugar adds sweetness and helps create a tender texture in the cookies. If you don’t have icing sugar, you can make your own by blending granulated sugar in a food processor until it reaches a fine powdery consistency.
  • Instant Coffee Powder – This ingredient lends the cookies their distinct coffee flavor. If you prefer a stronger coffee flavor, you can use espresso powder instead of instant coffee powder. You can also adjust the amount of coffee powder based on your taste preferences.
  • Water – Water is used to dissolve the instant coffee powder before adding it to the cookie dough. It helps evenly distribute the coffee flavor throughout the dough. You can use milk or cream as a substitute for water to add extra richness to the cookies.
  • Salt – Salt enhances the flavors in the cookies and balances out the sweetness. You can use regular table salt or sea salt. If you’re using salted butter, you may want to reduce the amount of added salt in the recipe.
  • Cake Flour – Cake flour has a lower protein content compared to all-purpose flour, resulting in softer and more tender cookies. If you don’t have cake flour, you can make a substitute by replacing 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour with cornstarch for every 1 cup of flour used in the recipe.

Remember, while substitutes can be used, they may alter the taste, texture, and overall outcome of the cookies. It’s always a good idea to experiment and adjust the recipe according to your preferences and dietary restrictions.

RECIPES TIPS

  • Use Room Temperature Ingredients: Make sure your butter is softened to room temperature before starting the recipe. This ensures easy mixing and a smooth cookie dough texture.
  • Cream Butter and Sugar Properly: Creaming the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy is key to achieving the right texture in your cookies. Beat them together for at least 1-2 minutes until the mixture is pale and airy.
  • Dissolve Coffee Powder Completely: Ensure that the instant coffee powder is fully dissolved in water before adding it to the cookie dough. This helps evenly distribute the coffee flavor throughout the cookies.
  • Do Not Overmix: Once you add the flour to the cookie dough, mix only until the ingredients are just combined. Overmixing can lead to tough cookies. Stop mixing as soon as the dough comes together.
  • Chill the Dough: Chilling the cookie dough in the freezer for 30 minutes helps firm it up and prevents the cookies from spreading too much during baking. It also allows the flavors to meld together for a better taste.
  • Preheat the Oven: Make sure your oven is fully preheated to the correct temperature before baking the cookies. This ensures even baking and prevents them from spreading too much.
  • Use Parchment Paper or Silicone Baking Mat: Line your baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat to prevent the cookies from sticking and ensure easy cleanup.
  • Keep an Eye on Baking Time: Since oven temperatures can vary, keep an eye on the cookies while they’re baking. They’re done when the edges are lightly golden brown. Overbaking can result in dry cookies.
  • Cool on a Wire Rack: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. This helps them firm up and prevents them from becoming too fragile.
  • Store Properly: Store the cooled cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. They can also be frozen for longer storage.

Remember, baking is an art, and small adjustments can cater to personal preferences. Don’t hesitate to experiment with ingredient ratios and shapes to make these Coffee Butter Cookies your own delightful creation!

MADE AHEAD INSTRUCTIONS

You can prepare Coffee Butter Cookie dough ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator or freezer until you’re ready to bake. Here’s how:

Refrigerator Method:

  1. Prepare the Dough: Follow the recipe instructions to prepare the Coffee Butter Cookie dough as usual.
  2. Wrap and Chill: Once the dough is ready, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container. Make sure the dough is well wrapped to prevent it from drying out in the refrigerator.
  3. Refrigerate: Store the wrapped dough in the refrigerator for up to 24-48 hours. Chilling the dough allows the flavors to develop and makes it easier to handle when shaping the cookies.
  4. Bake: When you’re ready to bake, remove the dough from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for about 10-15 minutes to soften slightly. Then proceed with piping the cookies onto a baking tray and baking them according to the recipe instructions.

Freezer Method:

  1. Prepare the Dough: Prepare the Coffee Butter Cookie dough following the recipe instructions.
  2. Shape and Freeze: Pipe the cookie dough onto a lined baking tray as directed in the recipe. Place the tray in the freezer, making sure the cookies are spaced apart and not touching each other.
  3. Flash Freeze: Allow the cookies to freeze on the tray for about 1 hour, or until they are firm to the touch.
  4. Transfer to Freezer Bags: Once the cookies are frozen solid, transfer them to freezer bags or airtight containers, placing parchment paper between layers to prevent sticking.
  5. Label and Store: Label the bags or containers with the date and type of cookies. Store them in the freezer for up to 1-2 months.
  6. Bake: When you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven and arrange the frozen cookies on a lined baking tray. Bake them directly from frozen, adding a few extra minutes to the baking time as needed.

By following these instructions, you can make Coffee Butter Cookie dough ahead of time and enjoy freshly baked cookies whenever you desire!

STORAGE & REHEATING

To store Coffee Butter Cookies and ensure they stay fresh and delicious, follow these simple guidelines:

Storage:

  1. Room Temperature: Once the cookies have cooled completely after baking, transfer them to an airtight container or cookie jar. Store them at room temperature in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
  2. Layering: If you need to stack the cookies in the container, place a sheet of parchment paper between each layer to prevent them from sticking together and to maintain their texture.
  3. Avoid Moisture: Keep the container tightly sealed to prevent moisture from getting in, which can cause the cookies to become soft or stale.

Shelf Life:

Coffee Butter Cookies stored properly at room temperature can last for up to 1 to 2 weeks, retaining their flavor and texture.

Reheating:

If your cookies have lost their crispness or you prefer them warm, you can easily refresh them:

  1. Oven Method: Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C). Place the cookies on a baking sheet and warm them in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes until they are heated through. Be careful not to overheat them, as this can cause them to become too dry.
  2. Room Temperature: If you prefer your cookies at room temperature, simply let them sit out for a while before serving.
  3. Serve with Beverages: Coffee Butter Cookies are delicious when paired with a hot cup of coffee or tea. Dunking them into your favorite beverage can also help soften them slightly if desired.

By following these storage and reheating tips, you can enjoy your Coffee Butter Cookies at their best, whether freshly baked or warmed up later!

RECIPES FAQS

Can I use salted butter instead of unsalted butter?

Yes, you can use salted butter in place of unsalted butter. However, you may need to adjust the amount of salt added to the recipe to account for the salt already present in the butter.

Can I substitute all-purpose flour for cake flour?

While cake flour is preferred for its finer texture, you can use all-purpose flour as a substitute. Keep in mind that the texture of the cookies may be slightly different.

Can I use brewed coffee instead of instant coffee powder?

Instant coffee powder is preferred in this recipe because it provides a stronger and more concentrated coffee flavor without adding extra liquid. Using brewed coffee may alter the texture of the dough and result in less pronounced coffee flavor.

Can I freeze the baked cookies?

Yes, you can freeze the baked cookies. Allow them to cool completely, then place them in an airtight container or freezer bag with parchment paper between layers to prevent sticking. They can be frozen for up to 1-2 months. Thaw at room temperature before serving.

Can I omit the coffee flavor?

If you prefer not to have a coffee flavor, you can omit the instant coffee powder and water from the recipe. You can replace it with other flavorings such as vanilla extract or almond extract if desired.

Why do my cookies spread too much during baking?

If your cookies spread too much during baking, it could be due to several factors such as using butter that is too warm, not chilling the dough sufficiently before baking, or placing the cookies too close together on the baking sheet. Ensure that the butter is at the correct temperature and chill the dough as instructed in the recipe.

How can I make the cookies more crispy?

To make the cookies more crispy, you can bake them for a few extra minutes until they are golden brown around the edges. You can also reduce the amount of butter slightly, but keep in mind that this may affect the texture and flavor of the cookies.

Can I add mix-ins like chocolate chips or nuts?

Yes, you can add mix-ins like chocolate chips, nuts, or dried fruit to the cookie dough for added texture and flavor. Fold them in gently after mixing in the flour.

How do I store the dough for later use?

If you want to store the cookie dough, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 48 hours. Alternatively, freeze the shaped dough balls for longer storage, and bake directly from frozen when needed.

How long do the cookies stay fresh, and what’s the best way to store them?

Cookies stay fresh for several days when stored in an airtight container. For longer freshness, consider refrigerating them. Store in a cool, dry place to maintain their delicate texture.

What is the ideal baking time to achieve the perfect texture?

Baking times may vary, but aim for around 12-15 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. Keep a close eye on the cookies during the last few minutes of baking to prevent overcooking.

Can I adjust the portion size of the recipes?

Yes, you can double the recipe if you need a larger batch. Adjust the ingredient quantities accordingly and make sure to use a larger tray or bake multiple batches if necessary. You can adjust the recipe by clicking the serving size in the recipe in recipes card to your liking!
If you can find the exact portion that you like, you can, also, adjust this in manual mode. Make sure that the cooking times and temperatures have been adjusted for different quantities of ingredients. Please do not pass the max line indicated inside of the mixing bowl.
