I've been making a recipe almost identical to this for 30yrs and it's a family favourite. I normally use 4oz ground almonds, 4oz granulated sugar, 8 oz butter, 8 oz all-purpose flour, 2 tbsp instant coffee granules. Mix up the first 4 ingredients, then dissolve the coffee in 1 tsp of water, and add it in as a paste - mix it in well. Add a few drops more water if necessary. Then chill, roll out & cut, chill again, then bake at 325F. For me, no extra sugar is necessary as I like the coffee flavour to come through and I dont' like very sweet cookies! I've also made the same recipe using lemon zest and lemon juice instead of the coffee, or orange zest/juice with a tsp of cinamon.



It was just ok. Very crumbly, had to add more butter. This is very different.



It's a yummy recipe! There are a few things that can make it better. I had to add about 1/2 a tablespoon more of butter, and I used a mixer to get everything mixed well enough. It isn't a very sweet cookie, so decorate with that white sugar A LOT to cut the bitterness of unsweetened coffee.
