Eggless Brazilian Coffee Cookies

BM # 19   Day 3

For the past two days I have been cooking with tea so  today I decided to make something with coffee. I simply love the aroma of coffee, though I do not drink it, yet I cannot resist coffee based products. I made these Brazilian Coffee Cookies, which turned out awesome, except that the ones at the back side of the tray were slightly over done. I scraped these and enjoyed them.

5o gms ...........brown sugar
50 gms........... white sugar
50 gms ...........butter
½..................... banana , mashed
¼ tsp.............. salt
¼ tsp.............. baking soda
1tsp................ coffee pwd
1cup ...............all purpose flour
2tbsp.............. milk.
Beat butter and sugars.
Add mashed banana and vanilla essence.
Add the flour and coffee.
Bind to a dough adding milk.
Place in a frig for about 10 mins.
Remove and shape into round , slightly flat balls.
Make intends with a fork, using some icing sugar.
Bake in a preheated oven for 20- 25 mins at 165deg.


These cookies had a distinct flavor of coffee, not very strong , but pleasing.They were crunchy , not one of those melting in the mouth kinds, but surely this crunch was what I was looking for.Some of the sugar crystals were still present, and these added to the crunchiness.Finally the indents with fork and icing sugar made them look really attractive.
