This one is for my coffee lovers. Tiny little bite sized cookies sandwiched together with creamy coffee buttercream. Perfect for when you are craving a sugar rush.
Ridiculously easy to make. Dust over a little icing sugar to add a little extra sweetness and pretty them up a little.
2 teaspoons instant coffee
1 teaspoon boiling water
75g butter – softened
50g light brown sugar
125g self raising flour
Pre heat oven to 180c / 160c fan
In a large mixing bowl beat together your butter and sugar for the biscuit dough until smooth and creamy. In a little cup mix together your coffee and water using 2 teaspoons instant coffee and 1 teaspoon boiling water. Add this to your butter and sugar mixture.
Slowly add the flour and beat in gently to make a dough.
Roll into a ball and shape into two log shapes. Chill in the fridge for approximately 15 minutes.
Remove from fridge and slice each log into 10 pieces. Place on a lined baking tray and press gently to flatten a little. Bake in the centre of the oven for 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely.
Meanwhile mix up your buttercream.
In a separate bowl mix together your butter and icing sugar. In a separate little cup mix together your coffee and hot water. Add this to your buttercream mix and gently beat together. I chilled mine in the fridge for a while.
Spoon onto one half of your cookies and sandwich together with the other half of the cookie.
Dust over a little icing sugar to add a little extra sweetness and make them pretty.
