These were a big hit for Christmas last year. One of my daughter’s picked it out as one of the cookies she wanted make. We weren’t too sure about them…but they turned out quite well. I think I would add maybe a bit more coffee and maybe a spoon of instant coffee to the glaze. But, they really are tasty and easy.
1 cup butter
3/4 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 ounce unsweetened chocolate
1 cup confectioners sugar
2 tablespoons milk
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla. Combine coffee and flour; stir into creamed mixture and mix well. Chill. Shape into 3/4-in. balls and place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 18-20 inutes. For glaze, melt butter and chocolate in a saucepan. Stir in sugar alternately with milk; beat until smooth. Frost cookies while still warm. Yield: 5 dozen.
