Crispy Coffee Cookies Recipe

I created this recipe because I wanted an easy-to-make cookie that folks can't resist. These tempting treats have a hint of coffee flavor and aren't overly sweet.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min./batch YIELD:30 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup instant coffee granules
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Additional sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine sugar and oil. Dissolve coffee in water; add to sugar mixture and mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the sugar mixture.
  • 2. Roll into 3/4-in. balls, then roll in additional sugar. Place 2 in. apart on lightly greased baking sheets; flatten with a fork. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until edges are firm. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: about 5 dozen.
