Chocolate Hazelnut Espresso Cookies

Cut out chocolate hazelnut espresso
I got up early this morning to bake delicious coffee flavor cookies for an exchange at a family party today.  I know, I know…I waited a little long to get busy baking but I hosted a party for friends at my house last night and there just hasn’t been enough time. I tell you all that so you will understand how simple and easy this recipe is. 

Chocolate Hazelnut Espresso Cookies
Beat together till fluffy, about 30 seconds:
  • 1 stick of softened butter
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons finely ground espresso beans
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
Beat in
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tablespoon Hazelnut syrup
Add
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup milk
Roll 1/2 of the dough at a time on floured surface about 1/4” thick.  Place cut out cookies on ungreased cookie sheet with a little space between each cookie.
Bake in pre heated oven 350° F for 8 minutes.  Cool cookies then dip the tops in semi-sweet chocolate or use a rubber spatula to smear it on the cookies.  Allow cookies to stand until chocolate is firm.

    1. The first batch I mistakenly added 2 Tablespoons of expresso instead of teaspoons... I kinda like the stronger flavor. :)
