Mocha Cookies May 6, 2012

Some temptations just can’t be resisted, put out a plateful of these melt-in-the-mouth cookies and watch them vanish.


Makes about 20




200g/7oz butter, softened

115g/4oz plain chocolate, broken into squares

50g/2oz icing sugar

30ml/2Tbsp strong black coffee

200g/7oz plain flour

50g/2oz cornflour




Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/gas mark 5. Line baking sheets with baking parchment.

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over hot water.

Cream the butter and icing sugar together until smooth and pale.

Beat in the melted chocolate, then the coffee.

Sift the flour and cornflour into the mixture.

Fold in lightly and evenly to make a soft mixture.

Put spoonfuls onto baking parchment and bake for about 15 minutes, or until the cookies are firm and just beginning to brown.

Leave to cool on the baking sheets for 10 minutes before moving onto a wire rack to cool completely.
