Slightly Bitter Chocolate & Coffee Cookies

Slightly Bitter Chocolate & Coffee Cookies

Chocolate and coffee dough all rolled up.
It's a slightly bitter cookie with a crunch.

Ingredients: For about 30 pieces

[Chocolate Dough]
25 g
☆Cake flour
☆Cocoa powder
[Coffee Dough]
25 g
Cake flour
Instant coffee
2 spoons
Hot water
as needed


1. Chocolate Dough: Bring butter to room temperature and make it soft. Combine the ☆ ingredients and sift.
2. Put butter and sugar in a bowl and mix with a whisk until it becomes creamy. Then take a rubber spatula.
3. Add the sifted flour from Step 1 to Step 2 and mix well.
4. When it looks like the photo, wrap it with a cellophane wrap and let it sit in the refrigerator.
5. Coffee Dough: Mix butter and sugar like the chocolate dough.
6. 1 spoon of the instant coffee should be about this amount. I think 2 spoons will be about 2 g. Adjust to your liking.
7. Melt Step 6 with a little amount of hot water. If the hot water is too much, the dough will become sticky, so be careful.
8. Add Step 7 to 5 and mix well with a rubber spatula.
9. Sift 40 g of cake flour into Step 8 and mix well.
10. The dough is ready. Letting both dough sit in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes would be the best.
11. Place the dough between a cellophane wrap and roll out the dough to be about 5mm to 8mm thickness.
12. Let the chocolate dough be a little more thinner and bigger.
13. Cut off the sides so they're about equal size. Let the chocolate dough stick out a little more than the other.
14. Roll up the dough. Shape the dough into a square and let it sit in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.
15. Once it hardens a bit, cut into 5mm thickness. Line them on a baking sheet with kitchen parchment paper.
16. Bake for 15 minutes in a 180°C preheated oven. It's soft when it is just baked ,so let it cool completely.
17. I made a zebra pattern cookie with the remaining dough.
18. All done.
