I participated in my very first Food Blogger Cookie Swap this year. It was crazy, but I managed to mail out some coffee cookies with a chocolate drizzle. I, however, forgot to send my little business cards to go with the boxes. Luckily, I was able to contact my people and let them know!

Not only did I send out cookies to three food bloggers that I didn't know, but I also received three batches of cookies in return. They were amazing. I got some crispy oatmeal raisin cookies, coconut biscotti, and chocolate chip cookies. They were all tasty! I'm not a huge fan of coconut, but the base recipe was soooo good it inspired me to make my own.

The coffee cookies have a sweet, coffee flavor. They're tender and the centers are soft. The tops have a ripple from the cookie scoop which I LOVE. I think it adds a nice textured look to the cookies.

  • In a mixing bowl, add in the butter, shortening, granulated and brown sugar. Cream together on medium speed for two minutes.

  1. Absolutely fabulous 👌We all love these cookies even the non-coffee drinkers. I do like to add a little extra espresso powder.5 stars

    1. You can use regular brewed coffee in place of Instant but I would recommend making the coffee extra strong. The instant coffee powder has a powerful taste that makes these cookies taste great. Replace it with a tablespoon of espresso or strongly brewed coffee.

    1. You can use 1/2 the amount of espresso powder and it should t be too strong. Just be sure it is very finely ground so it dissolves completely!

    1. Hi Janet- I make scoops about 2 tablespoons in size and get around 20 cookies. I hope this helps! Enjoy.
