Mint Mocha Cookies

Filed under: Cookies — blackteapot @ 3:01 am
  •  1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  •  1/3 cup espresso coffee or very strong coffee
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • granulated sugar
  • 24 Candy Cane Hershey Kisses

Stir together flour, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt in a medium bowl.

In a large bowl mix butter and sugar until fluffy. Add vanilla and egg until well combined. Slowly stir in coffee until well combined. Add dry ingredients, and stir until well mixed. Refrigerate mixture for at least 30 minutes.

During this time, preheat oven to 350*F.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls, and roll into granulated sugar.

Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack. Immediately push a Hershey’s Kiss into the middle of each cookie, and be careful not to move the rack until the cookies completely cool, or the Hershey’s Kisses could melt into a mess.

Makes 2 dozen
