Piped Coffee Butter Cookies #CreativeCookieExchange

This months theme in the Creative Cookie exchange, was Wake up from winter with tea or coffee. I was originally going to make these cookies with green tea but couldn't fine any that I needed for cooking, so added coffee instead  but thats OK as I love coffee flavoured cookies and these ones taste great. 

200g cake flour
130g butter, softened at room temperature
30g caster sugar
70g icing sugar
1 egg

*1 tsp coffee extract
*1 tsp vanilla extract (for vanilla flavoured)
* 1g green tea for green tea flavoured)
*20g cocoa powder (for chocolate flavour)

  1. Mix butter with caster sugar and icing sugar. Beat until light and fluffy.
  2. Add in egg beating well .
  3. Add coffee extract (if using) and beat thoroughly.
  4. Add in cake flour (and green tea powder/ cocoa powder/ vanilla if using) and mix well.
  5. Pipe into desired shapes. (I chilled the dough in the fridge for 15 mins after piping.)
  6. Bake at 190 deg C for 10 mins until golden brown. (I baked mine at 180 deg C for 15 mins.)
  7. Store in air-tight containers after cooling.


The theme this month is Wake from Winter with Coffee and Tea--because unlike last month, now our Spring Fever has some basis in reality! Creative Cookie Exchange has decided to stop using the linky. What this means is that the only way to join in the fun is to become a host. Just contact Laura at thespicedlife AT gmail DOT com and she will get you added to our Facebook group, where we discuss our cookies and share links.
You can also just use us as a great resource for cookie recipes--be sure to check out our Facebook page, our Pinterest Board, and our monthly posts. You will be able to find them the first Tuesday after the 15th of each month! Also, if you are looking for inspiration to get in the kitchen and start baking, check out what all of the hosting bloggers have made:
