Quick,no-fuss and coffee flavoured; what’s not to like! I sometimes bake a batch of these biscuits with our morning tea. Yeah, they are that simple, not to mention crisp and the refreshing espresso flavour. They come together in fifteen minutes (plus the baking time)
Here is what you need to get 25 gorgeous coffee cookies:
(Recipe sourced from Treat N Treat)
130 grams/1 cup Maida/All purpose flour
¼ tsp baking powder
1 tbsp instant coffee powder dissolved in 1 tbsp hot water (I used Nescafe)
85 grams/ 6 Tbsp butter, softened (I use Amul)
60 grams/ eaped ¼ cup of powdered sugar ( I weigh white granulated sugar and then powder it in the mixer-grinder)
¼ tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 160C.
Mix coffee powder in hot water and leave to cool.
Sift together flour and baking powder.
Cream butter and sugar, add coffee and vanilla extract.
Add flour and bring together to get a soft dough.
Make 25 small balls, flatten them and press down a little with a fork. Lay them an inch apart on the baking sheet.
Bake for 18-20 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes and then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
*To bake chocolate biscuits,omit the coffee and add a tbsp of cocoa
** To bake vanilla biscuits- Omit the coffee and increase the vanilla extract to a tsp

Thanks babe ❤ That was super quick!
Will try.. love coffee flavour!
Lovely. Will try it tomorrow for sure. Thanks for the recipe.
Thanks dear ❤️❤️
I always have questions, Thank you in advance for answering them. This time:
all 25 cookies wont go in so do I need to refrigerate the balance while 1st batch bakes?
space between cookies?? Do they spread like those choco chip ones
How about adding some choco chips to the dough?? choco chip-coffee.. yummmmm!
Naah you can leave them on the counter as the others bake.
They puff up but don’t spread much.
Chico chip, why not?
Go ahead by all means 😃😃👍🏻
You can keep them about an inch apart.
Made them in chocolate flavour yesterday.. With a slight variation.. used 4 tbsp amul butter and 2 tbsp peanut butter.. End result was superb (as expected with your recipes 🙂 )
Yummy instant cookies…Garima …I have almost tried most of your recipes.Easy…..tasty….quick
Thanks a bunch Zeba ❤️😃
Awesome flavour, this can easily quench my coffe thirsy at ungodly hours.
Mmmmm… And so easy to whip up!
Wow! Looks really doable .. Hv never baked a single cookie in my life. Your cookies look so inspiring !! Am trying chocolate version. Right now!!!!
And we know how beautifully that went ❤️❤️😃😃😃 thanks babe 😘
Hi ma’m. The cookies look wonderful. Thank you for sharing the recipe. I have one question: for baking cakes we keep the tray in the lower row and heat the lower rods, so for baking cookies do we do the same or different setting?
Thank you 🙂
My oven is 45 litres and I bake everything on the bottom shelf keeping both the rods on.
In a smaller oven, you might be able to bake with just the bottom one.
But I always keep the bread/cookies on the middle shelf.
They just look so perfect!!
Thanks Malar ❤️
How delicious!! I don’t think I can stop at one 😀
Nor can I 😛 thanks Freda ❤️
can i replace maida with wholewheat flour????
Yes you can 🙂 A friend tried with 100 grams aata and 30 grams maida and they worked 🙂
All your recipes are really good. I tried making coffee cookies.. but the cookies got flattened too much..They became too thin and too big in size.. what can be the reason for that?
Thanks in advance
Too much liquid or heat can be the reason. These cookies have been tried by quite a few people and has worked perfectly. Go by the exact weight.
Thanks for the reply. . Measurements were same. . But I baked at 180. That may b the reason.. Will try again soon at 160
Thanks so much 🙂
Such great cookies. Thanks for sharing
Hey Garima i made a bunch of these cookies (choc flavoured) and they turned out to be great!
Thanks a lot for the recipe 🙂
Lovely to hear you liked them Rashmi 🙂
loved this recipe..am trying it today..will let you know 🙂
I made these today- and they are just perfect!
That’s great to hear Isha 😀
Hi garima, not sure why my batter is sticky. I added maida but still it’s too sticky. I used white butter. Do not have a blender so used moxie to mix butter and sugar. Any suggestions to salvage this?
I use a simple hand whisk to mix butter and sugar.
Sometimes white butter has high water content and that may make the batter sticky.
Try refrigerating for half an hour before baking. That should help.
I’m too tempted to make these cookies….Jus 1 query….can I replace butter with olive oil ??
Sorry Richa, I haven’t tried baking them with any oil.
Tried the chocolate version.. Came out amazing.. Thank you ☺
That’s great to hear Zahara 😃😃
Does adding refined oil instead of butter to the cookies make any difference in the softness/ hardness of the cookies? Also have you ever tried making gluten (wheat/ maida) free cookies?
I’ve never tried adding oil. And no, never tried gluten free cookies either 😦
Hi Garima, I never had success baking cookies earlier. But this recipie seemed easy. Just baked a batch and they are yummy. I put it on high rack and they started to burn a bit. then realised my mistake and removed the rack. So not burnt much. Anyway, i loved them not just because of the taste but bec it is soo easy! thanks a ton dear!!
hi. just tried it and its superb. quick and easy. my husband will surely love it. thanks.
