“These yummy cooffee treats come from a German cookbook, called "Baked Goods" and really are something special for your cookie tray. You can choose to make other shapes (I tried crescents), but since the cookies spread a lot, I find the balls work best. Please note: Prep time does not include 1 hour chilling time”
30 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 g instant cappuccino mix (or ordinary coffee powder)
  • 25 ml hot water
  • 150 g flour
  • 50 g ground almonds
  • 50 g sugar (1/4 cup)
  • 100 g butter, in medium pieces
  • 25 g chocolate (milk, dark or white)


  1. Dissolve cappuccino powder in hot water. Let cool slightly.
  2. In a big bowl mix flour, almonds and sugar. Add butter and cappuccino.
  3. Knead into a dough (maybe using a kitchen aid as not to warm the dough too much).
  4. Chill for 1 hour.
  5. Form dough into small balls (size of a walnut) and place on a paper-lined baking sheet. Do not flatten balls.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven at 180°C/350°F for 15 minutes or until slightly coloured.
  7. Melt the chocolate using your favourite method (hot water bath or microwave) and drizzle it over the baked cookie balls using a teaspoon.
  8. Let dry and enjoy! :).
