Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coarse granulated sugar

Method

Line 2 rimless baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

In large bowl, beat butter with brown sugar until light; beat in egg and vanilla until smooth. In small bowl, dissolve coffee granules in 1 tbsp (15 mL) hot water; stir into butter mixture. In bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt ; stir into egg mixture in 3 additions to form stiff dough.

Pour granulated sugar into shallow dish. Roll dough by rounded teaspoonfuls (5 mL) into balls; roll each in granulated sugar, pressing to coat. Place, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on prepared pans.

Using 2-inch (5 cm) bottom of glass, flatten cookies to about 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness, dipping glass into granulated sugar before pressing each time. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. (Make-ahead: Freeze until firm. Layer between waxed paper in airtight containers and freeze for up to 1 month.)

Bake in top and bottom thirds of 350°F (180°C) oven, switching and rotating pans halfway through, until cookies begin to crack, about 9 minutes. Transfer to racks and let cool completely.
