Chocolate Hazelnut Espresso Cookies

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. 

Cut out chocolate hazelnut espresso

Chocolate Hazelnut Espresso Cookies Recipe

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
  • 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.
