Coffee & Cream Cookies 2 Ways

COFFEE TWIST COOKIES

 

Makes 40 twisted cookies

Hands-on time: 15 minutes

Hands-off time: 40 minutes

 

INGREDIENTS

¾ cup (172g) margarine

¼ cup granulated sugar

1 medium egg

2 tsp NESCAFÉ Classic Black Roast

1 cup cake flour, sieved, plus extra for rolling

¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp NESTLÉ Cocoa Powder

 

Serving suggestion:
A cup of NESCAFÉ coffee

 

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line two baking trays with baking paper.
     

  2. Using an electric whisk, beat the margarine and sugar until pale, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and beat until incorporated.
     

  3. Fold in the NESCAFÉ Classic Black Roast; flour and bicarbonate of soda. Knead the dough until a firm dough is formed.
     

  4. Split the dough in half and place one half in a bowl. Add the Nestlé Cocoa powder to the other half of the dough and mix until fully incorporated. Place both portions of dough into the fridge until slightly firm. *Chef’s Tip: Freeze the cookie dough in a resealable bag and bake from frozen when you need cookies.
     

  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll a long 30 cm sausage of each of the flavours. Cut the sausage into 4 cm long smaller sausages of each flavoured dough. Twist a chocolate flavoured sausage around the plain dough stick to form the shape of a twisted rope, press the ends slightly to seal. Place each twisted rope onto the prepared baking trays, 2 cm apart.
     

  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool completely. Serve on a platter alongside a cup of NESCAFÉ coffee and ENJOY!
