To bake cookies preheat oven at 180 degrees for 10 minutes.
Add ½ cup butter to a mixing bowl & add half cup powdered sugar to it. Whisk with electric beater till the mixture becomes fluffy, creamy and light. This would take approx. 5 minutes. This process called creaming method.
After creaming add 1.5 Tspn coffee powder and 1 Tbsp hot milk to this mixture. Mix well to dissolve coffee & milk in the sugar butter mixture. Choose the brand of your coffee & the quantity as per your taste.
After mixing the coffee & milk add 3 Tbsp. cocoa powder and mix it for about 20-25 seconds.
After Step3 add corn flour and mix it well.
After mixing corn flour finally add 1 cup all-purpose flour & mix all-purpose flour with spatula till it become soft dough. This would take around a minute or so.
After mixing nicely with spatula knead with hands to get a soft and smooth dough. Our cookie dough is ready.
Lay parchment paper according to the shape and size of baking tray.
To shape cookies we will use fixed size spoon to ensure all cookies are of the same size. Spoon size will depend upon how large or how small you want the cookies to be.
Take a small portion of dough with the spoon. Take dough in hand from the spoon and roll in oval shape rolling the dough ball between your hands. Rolling will smoothen the dough ball and this ensures good shape after baking.
After rolling place the dough ball on the baking tray. Similarly roll & shape the rest of the cookies. Because they expand while baking place them 1 inch apart from each other in all directions.
After placing all the cookies on the tray, using a knife and with a slight pressure, give one slit in the center of the cookies to make them look exactly like coffee beans.
The oven would be preheated by now. After preheating the oven, place the baking tray in the oven & bake the cookies at 180 degrees for 18-20 minutes.
Cookies are soft after baking thus after baking the cookies let them cool down to room temperature. They become crunchy and crispy after cooling down.
After cooling down, our cookies are ready to be served. Enjoy them with coffee or serve them as
