How to Bake Coffee Walnut Cookie

I love coffee very much. Could not miss a cup a single day. Besides drinking coffee as a beverage, coffee can be used in making cookies, cakes and puddings too.

In the beginning, I thought that by adding coffee into cookies, it will taste bitter or ruin the whole batter. To my amazement, it taste delicious! I guess it is due to the butter and vanilla which well blended with the coffee flavor, eventhough I used 3-in-1 coffee powder instead of the original ones. Imagine the coffee fragrant lingers in the cookies and the mixture of walnuts gives out the crunchiness, better than normal groundnuts.

This recipe resembles chocolate chips cookie that has the soft texture, crunchy to bite, crispy on the edges and easily melt in your mouth.

Coffee Walnut cookie goes well with coffee or tea during teatime. I am sure your kids will fall for these cookies because my kids are asking for more!

How to Make Coffee Walnut Cookie

Preparation time takes around 10 minutes. All you need to do is , in a BIG bowl, pour in all the ingredients except the walnuts and coffee powder. Ensure that you have sifted all the dry ingredients before. Beat them up consistently until the batter becomes soft and creamy. Then add in the walnuts, coffee powder and blend well. Quick and easy , isn't it?

Baking time takes 15 to 20 minutes per tray. Therefore, it depends on how much batter you could put on the baking tray. If each tray makes 8 cookies, you will need to bake 4 to 5 times to finish up the whole batter.

  • When the cookies are starting to change color to brownish with crispy edges, use a spoon to touch the tenderness of the top cookie.

  • If it is semi-soft, you can turn off the oven now.
  • Allow the cookies to cool off on baking tray because the cookies will harden by themselves.
