RECIPE: COFFEE SHORTBREAD COOKIES

Ingredients For 60 Cookies

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup white baking chips, melted (substitute chopped white chocolate)
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted (substitute chopped semisweet chocolate)
  • 2 teaspoons shortening, divided
  • Preparation

    1. PREHEAT the oven to 300°F. Cream the butter, sugars and coffee granules in a large bowl until light and fluffy.

    2. COMBINE the flour and salt in another bowl; gradually add to the creamed mixture.

    3. ROLL the dough on a lightly floured surface to a 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out the cookies with floured 2-inch to 3-inch cookie cutters.

    4. PLACE the cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 300°F for 20-22 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks to cool.

    5. MAKE the chocolate drizzles. In a microwave, melt the white chocolate with 1 teaspoon shortening; stir until smooth. Repeat with the semisweet chocolate and remaining shortening. Drizzle over the cookies.

    6. REFRIGERATE until set. Store the cookies between pieces of waxed paper in an airtight container.
