Java Cookie Sticks



These unassuming cookies are simple to make and packed with a nice balance of chocolate and coffee flavored. I used my cookie press but you could use a piping bag if you prefer. These mocha-flavored fingers of crisp, buttery cookie make a nice, light snack for teatime, but watch out because they are addictive!



Java Cookie Sticks
Makes 2 dozen | Flo Braker

1 1/2 cups flour
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup butter, room temperature
1 tsp instant coffee powder dissolved in 1 tsp vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment/silicone.

2. Combine all dry ingredients in a food processor. Pulse to combine. Add the butter and coffee powder mixture and process in pulses just until the mixture comes together in the food processor and forms a ball. Do not refrigerate. Place dough in a cookie press or a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe the dough in lines onto the prepared cookie sheet.

3. Bake 8-11 minutes or until cookies are no longer shiny. Cool fully. Store air tight. If desired, to make these prettier, dip the long edge of the cooled cookies into melted chocolate and dip into crushed walnuts.

Mmmm...my favorite flavors together. Why do I always put my cookie press away after Christmas? I could be using it for these cookies!
