|Latte Cookies, finalist in Dallas Morning News-Central Mkt Holiday Cookie Contest|
I have entered three of the past four years, have always been a finalist (10 are chosen from each category), won first place one year, last year won 3rd place.
This recipe I am sharing on here was one of my first entries, it was chosen as one of the ten finalists in the Incredibly Easy Category.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup shortening
1 tbsp milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tbsp instant coffee powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix together sugars, shortening, egg, milk and vanilla extract. Stir in remaining ingredients. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten to 1/8 inch thickness with greased bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Bake until light brown, 7 to 8 minutes.
Note: Medaglia D'oro Espresso Coffee can be found at most major grocery stores. It is instant dried coffee and comes in a 2 ounce jar.
