12 Days of Holiday Cookies: Coffee Cookies (Day 8)

December 23, 2011

If you are a coffee lover, you must bake these coffee cookies this holiday season.  The cookies are made with plump raisins and buttery walnuts.  You can swap the raisins for dried cherries and the walnuts for pecans.  Serve these coffee cookies to the family or leave them for Santa.


Coffee Cookies


100 grams cake flour

35 grams sugar

1 tablespoon instant coffee granules

50 grams toasted walnuts

pinch of salt

3 tablespoon canola oil

1 tablespoon water

20 grams raisins

powdered sugar, to dust


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Put the cake flour, sugar, coffee, walnuts, and salt in a food processor and process for about 10 seconds (or until the walnuts are well grounded).

Now put the mixture into a mixing bowl and add canola oil. Form a pasty dough, then separate the dough with your hands to form small crumbs. Add the water and form into a clean dough. If you like raisins, you can combine it with the dough now.

Divide the dough into 16 pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Put each ball on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes.

Let the cookies cool for about 20 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
