I regularly search through the Martha Stewart website, just looking at all the things she has put up. I found this recipe and thought I would make them.
I halved the recipe because I didn’t want as many. You can get the original recipe here.
You Will Need.. (I halved the below amounts)
1 1/2 Cups Plain Flour
1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
1 1/2 Teaspoons Ground Espresso Beans
1 Cup Butter
1 Cup Icing Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
Firstly beat together the butter, icing sugar and vanilla essence.
Next, beat in the flour, cocoa powder and espresso beans.
Similar to the freezer cookies, knead the mixture and roll it into a sausage type shape.
Wrap it in glad wrap and place in the freezer for 45-60 minutes.
Take the mixture out of the freezer and cut into slices. (I made mine a bit thick, so make them about 0.5-1cm thick.
Place in the oven on 160 degrees celsius, on a baking tray lined with baking paper for 20-25 minutes until they are firm to the touch.
Keep in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
