This morning Mr Goodsell put in a request for some coffee flavoured biscuits, so I went on a mission to find a nice recipe for one and finally came across a keeper in an old Esk Valley cookery book that belonged to my Grandma.
They turned out super well, so I thought you might like to give them a whirl too!
Coffee biscuit ingredients:
- 113 grams butter
- 85 grams sugar
- 1.5 cups plain flour
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 rounded teaspoon instant coffee
- 1 teaspoon hot water
Coffee biscuit method:
Cream the butter and sugar. Combine the instant coffee & hot water in a cup until the coffee has dissolved. Add all ingredients together and mix well. Roll a tiny teaspoon full in your palm and gently squish the top down with a fork.
Bake in a moderate oven for 12 minutes. Let cool.
Coffee icing ingredients:
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 level teaspoon instant coffee
- hot water
Coffee icing method:
Place the instant coffee in small bowl, add a dribble of hot water and stir until the coffee has melted. Add icing sugar and butter. Slowly drizzle very hot water into the mixture until the icing is at the correct consistency. Ice the top of each biscuit and add a small portion of walnut to the top.
