I promised myself a long time ago that I will do 3 recipes from every Hannah Swensen murder mystery book (by Joanne Fluke). I have tested a lot of recipes from these books, I would say 1/3, but I just haven’t had the time to write them down yet! Here is my third recipe from the Red Velvet Cupcake Murder.
Coffee and cream cookies
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup salted butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup strong coffee (room temperature)
2 tsp instant coffee
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
3 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 cups white chocolate chips
50 – 60 white miniature marshmallow (1 per cookie said the recipe or more if you´d like)
Mix in eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.
Add the vanilla extract and strong coffee. Mix. Then add instant coffee, salt and baking powder. Blend well.
Mix in the flour a half cup at a time, beating after each addition. Then add white chocolate chips by hand.
Drop spoonfuls of dough onto greased cookie sheets, 12 to a standard sheet.
Press your impeccably clean thumb into the center of each dough mound. Fill the resulting indentation with a white miniature marshmallow. Press it down slightly.
Bake the cookies at preheated oven, 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until nicely browned.
Makes approx 4 to 5 dozen cookies, depending on cookie size.
I like cookies with coffee in them because they work like a cup of coffee, well when you eat enough 🙂
If you’re a big Hannah fan as well give me a shout!
*Note from Feb 10th: If you don´t like brown marshmallows on top (after baking), put them on when you take them out of the oven!
