I invented these last night in an attempt to make a cookie my husband will care about. He is a man indifferent to sweets, and I set out to find the one that he can't put down. These are cookies for grown ups. they are deliciously creamy, chewy, and CAFFINATED!
1 stick butter room temperature or melted
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp instant coffee granuals, or turkish ground coffee
1/4 cup Irish Cream
1 tsp salt
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tbsp cornstarch
Beat together first 4 ingredients. mix flour and cornstarch together. add one cup at a time to wet ingredients. mix well. cover and refrigerate one hour.
heat oven to 350 degrees.
Roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch thick with a shot glass or other small round cutter, cut 1 to 1 1/2 inch circles, repeat until all the dough is used. bake about 10 minutes, until you see the bottoms start to turn golden, and the dough does not spring back when you touch it. cool completely.
